key lime pie

I’ve made this pie twice (once with a slightly altered recipe) and both times it’s been heavenly.

Key Lime Pie

  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix well. Pour into unbaked graham cracker shell.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Top with whipped topping and garnish with lime slices if desired.

The first time I made it, I used 5 egg yolks and 1 can sweetened condensed milk. It was more egg-y than I wanted, and all the comments said to change it up. So I did. It was perfect the second time.

taste rating: 9.5/10

it was sooooooo so yummy. tastes like summer. you’ll be seriously happy you made this — and you’ll have a veeeery hard time sharing it with anyone. I think I ate half the pie when I made it.

ease of cooking: 8/10

whisking it all together was the hardest part. and even that was not very hard. just make sure it’s really really all mixed together. but really – that’s it. just seriously try not to eat the whole thing.
