BEST. PIE. EVER. {{Key Lime}} Super Easy Recipe - THREE ingredients! Creamy and delicious

I made this for National Pi Day ((an apple pie too.))  I can't tell you how amazingly delicious it was and top pick over the apple pie. ONLY three ingredients...THREE!

And if you're like me, I'm still amazed that key lime pie is not green. If you knew that already....yeah, me too. Lol. Seriously, it should be green! I almost feel tempted to add a little food color just to make it green. Ooooh that would fit in my St. Patrick's Day green day theme. 

I searched online at first and most have very similar ingredients but just different variations of how much of what. I read comments and some didn't fill the pie crust, grainy and not creamy or not key limey enough. You get the idea. I was going for easy and awesome.

This recipe made the perfect amount, perfect key lime taste, perfect texture. EVERYTHING was perfect! 


I used fresh limes so the most time consuming part was getting the lime juice. 

1-  cup lime juice ((fresh took 16 limes but they were small))
2 - cans of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounce)
4 - egg yokes
1 - 9 inch prepared graham cracker pie crust
whip cream (optional)
MIX

POUR - I opted for a pre-made graham cracker crust but I bet home made would kick this pie up a notch...if that's possible. 

BAKE

375 for 20-25 mins. Other recipes say 15 mins but just to be safe I baked a little longer. 

Best to let it chill for at least 2 hours (the hardest part, waiting.) Topped with whip cream. Tiny blobs shown here but I ended up covering the entire pie top. My boys love whip cream. 

DONE! Can you believe it's that easy!? Let me know if you try it and what you think. 


Thank you for stopping by!

    1. So welcome! Key lime is my hubby's and oldest son's absolute favorite pie. I don't make it enough. Pi day was really taken advantage of....we ate WAY too much pie. Plus the boys had it for breakfast too. :/ I did make a pi shaped crescent roll. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!
