Key Lime Pie – Just 3 simple ingredients to make this delicious, sweet, tart and creamy pie!
In the summer I usually like no bake desserts like Mint Chocolate Chip Pie, but some creamy and refreshing desserts that use the oven still need to be made. Like this key lime pie recipe. Key lime pie is one of my husband’s favorite desserts, and has been a staple in our house for years.
Creamy pies are my favorite kind. French Silk Pie might be my all time favorite pie. Unless it is a strawberry pie, we aren’t usually the fruit pie kind of people. So this key lime pie is a favorite for the whole family.
I have been making this easy key lime pie for years. It only takes 3 ingredients! You can’t get much better than that. I have no idea where the actual recipe came from. My husband found it about 15 years ago, and jotted it down on a post it note. Since then it has made its way to a recipe card and now here, so we can always find it.
This recipe for key lime pie is relatively basic. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t amazing. It doesn’t have a meringue topping or anything fancy. But topping with homemade whipped cream is definitely a must. We like our key lime pie tart, so the sweet cream helps balance it all out. My favorite form of meringue is Pavlova!
This key lime pie recipe is super easy to make. You have the Graham Cracker Crust, and then the filling of the pie is 3 ingredients! You really can’t get much simpler. Well No Bake Kool Aid pie might be a close 2nd.
How to Make Key Lime Pie
- Use a large bowl so you can mix everything together well.
- Separate the egg whites and yolks. You can save the egg whites or breakfast or something else later, you just don’t want any of them in your pie.
- Key lime juice is different that regular lime juice. Most stores have a bottle of the key lime juice in the juice isle, so look for it there.
- You can use store bought or homemade graham cracker crust, both are delicious and work well!
