  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish.

  5. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix on low speed until well combined. Gradually add the lime juice, mixing until smooth.
  6. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and bake for 12 minutes. Allow the pie to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  7. Before serving, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks and spread it over the top of the pie.
  8. Enjoy a slice of this heavenly key lime pie with a cup of coffee or as a dessert after a satisfying meal.
