Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter in a bowl with a fork until combined well, then press mixture evenly onto bottom and up side of a 9-inch (4-cup) glass pie plate.
  • Bake the crust in the middle of your oven for 10 minutes and cool on a pie plate on a rack (leave your oven on).
  • Whisk together condensed milk and yolks in a bowl until combined well. Add juice and whisk until combined well (mixture will thicken slightly). Pour filling into crust and bake in middle of oven 15 minutes. Cool pie completely on rack (filling will set as it cools), then chill, covered, at least 8 hours.
  • Just before serving, beat cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Serve pie topped with cream.
  • Cooks note: Pie (without topping) can be chilled up to 1 day.

    That looks like the same recipe that's been in my family for years, It's a good one. Fortunately we do have key limes and key lime Trees where I live. Key limes are so mild you can actually eat them bare (if you dare!) Thanks for posting !

    authentic.. i spend two months in the keys every winter and this is an authentic key lime pie recipe. as an aside... did you know there are no key lime trees (bushes) left in the keys? the salt water influx during recent hurricanes killed them all.
