- ¾ Cup key lime juice, fresh squeezed (about a pound of key limes)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 8 oz whipped topping, plus more for garnish
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- ½ stick butter, unsalted, melted
- 2 cups honey cereal (I used Honey Graham O's)
- ½ sleeve Graham Crackers
- Juice your limes (or buy the juice, Whole Foods sells it, but I went authentic with the fresh squeezed!)
- Crush graham crackers and cereal and mix with the butter, set aside.
- Cream the cream cheese until smooth using a hand mixer, add in the sweetened condensed milk and mix until smooth.
- Add the key lime juice and mix until smooth.
- Let the whipped topping defrost and add to the cream cheese mixture, folding it in until combined.
- This recipe should make 2 large pies, so you will need 2 pie pans
- Split your crust mix into two even amounts and smash into the bottom of your pans
- Put half of the topping into each pan
- Put into your freezer for at least 1 hour so they have time to set
Key Lime Pie|This Is Why I’m Full
The Hubby says I got way more excited about this Key Lime Pie than I should’ve, but I’m not gonna lie, it was amazing! I made it for our 1 year wedding anniversary (Yay, we made it! Everyone we know kept saying that the first year is the hardest, but every day was wonderful and I am so happy to call him my hubby!) and I wish that I had the time to make it again, the only really time consuming part was juicing the limes. Key Limes aren’t the size of regular limes, they are much smaller so it takes a lot more than you would think to get the juice you need to make the pie!
Like I said in the recipe you can buy the key lime juice both online and in a lot of stores, but for me there was something so satisfying about juicing the limes by hand! Hard work, but worth the effort for sure!
