Today I am going to share with you my version of easy key lime pie. If you have never made key lime pie before it is quite simple, especially with my version. There are 4 essential elements to making this pie graham cracker crust, sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and lime juice. Those can be found in most recipes for this kind of pie. There really is no excuse with this recipe. ANYONE can make this key lime pie recipe. I really feel it is foolproof.
Now the additional ingredients are what can change it up. I like to ad lime zest and top my pie with real whipped cream. I am a big fan of real whipping cream and love it on almost all pies. Some people top it with meringue or a sour cream topping or nothing at all. I love the addition of the sweet whipped cream to the tart and tangy lime pie. Now for picture purposes, I only use a little whipped cream so you could see the beautiful lime portion of the pie. However, when I eat it, the whole slice with a covering of cream. YUM! This pie is also best if you can give it 12 hours to chill, so it is great when you want to make a dessert ahead of time.Print
