The Best Key Lime Pie Recipe

Lime pie has all the best flavours, and the filling is extra creamy and smooth thanks to a surprise ingredient.  


FOR THE CRUST: – 1 1/2 cups finely crushed Graham crackers (about 10 crackers) – 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted – 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar  FOR THE FILLING: – 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (whole or 2%) – 2 (14-oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk – 1 Tablespoon freshly grated key lime (or regular lime) zest, plus more for garnishing – 3/4 cup fresh key lime (or regular lime) juice – 2 cups homemade or store-bought whipped cream, for topping

MAKE THE CRUST: To create the crust, preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Blend crumbled graham crackers, melted butter, and brown sugar in a medium bowl.   

Step 1


Stir the liquid and moisten the graham crackers with your fingertips if needed. Press mixture into 9-inch pie pan centre and sides. Save the crust for filling after 8 minutes of baking.  

Step 2

MAKE THE FILLING : Mix Greek yoghurt, sweetened condensed milk, lime zest, and juice in a big bowl. Fill the pie crust with the ingredients. It need not be entirely chilled.  

Step 3

Bake the pie for 15 minutes until the filling has barely set. After cooling for 1 hour, tent the pie loosely with foil and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.  

Step 4

Remove the pie from the fridge and pipe or pile whipped cream on top. Slice the pie and serve.
