Super Simple Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is a wonderful summer dessert.  So refreshing and full of great citrus flavor!

I have baked this key lime pie recipe countless times and it is always well received.  In fact, once my father-in-law Peter ate almost an entire pie at one sitting!

I typically buy Nellie & Joe’s key lime juice since I cannot always find fresh key limes.

Keebler and Nabisco both make pre-made graham cracker crusts.  For something a little different, I have made individual key lime pies.  Simply follow the recipe below and pour the filling into individual graham cracker pie crusts.

Jess’s Super Simple Key Lime Pie

  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
  • Cool Whip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and key lime juice until well blended.  Pour the filling into the pie crust.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until pie is set.  Let pie cool for 10 minutes and then refrigerate.

Top entire pie with Cool Whip before serving.  Garnish with sliced key limes.
