    Wildflour's Note:

    My DH say's that mine is the best Key Lime Pie he's ever had! I was SO HAPPY!! He used to live in Florida, and said it tastes just like the pie you get down there. (I was very proud and relieved to hear that! I was really nervous to make him one!) Hope you give my recipe a try. It's a wonderful, easy and no-fail recipe!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-10



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325º.
    2. 2
      In medium bowl, gently whisk eggs.
    3. 3
      Slowly whisk in sweetened condensed milk.
    4. 4
      Slowly whisk in key lime juice.
    5. 5
      *Do not over mix, this will create bubbles. Just stir gently til all ingredients are mixed together well.
    6. 6
      Pop into oven for 40-45 minutes. *My oven takes 44 minutes exactly.
    7. 7
      The edge of pie will just START to slightly poof up and the edge of pie will also be very SLIGHTLY a pale golden brown. Just very lightly browned. The pie also will no longer jiggle.
    8. 8
      Let cool. Pie will set up perfectly as it cools.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate at least 4-6 hours or overnight.
    10. 10
      Pie gets even better the next day! :).
    11. 11
      Serve with whipped cream topping.
    12. 12
      Garnish with slices of key limes, kiwi and/or fanned strawberries if desired.
    13. 13
      VERY rich and creamy!
    14. 14
      ***You can save the egg whites and make a meringue top if preffered. But we like the cool, smooth creaminess of sweetened whipped cream much better than meringue. ;).
    15. 15
      The only other thing I do, is I do add 2 drops green food coloring to the pie for a bit of green color. But this is totally up to you!
    16. 16
      *If preferred, you can also bake this pie in a 9" deep dish pastry crust.

      Fabulous recipe!! I was shooting to beat Bonefish Grill's key lime pie, and I think this did it! I added in the zest of 2 limes, used regular lime juice, and made my own crust (I just don't do pre-bought graham cracker crusts) using ginger snaps and chopped pecans!! SO good - this is definitely my new Key Lime Pie recipe!!

      This recipe is so easy and yet so tasty! I've started making it in mini graham wafer pie-crusts - 12 cups just barely fit the filling, if you fill them right up. It takes about 25 min to bake. My husband loves them, because I freeze them, and he can pull one out whenever he wants a treat...portion control!
