Original recipe makes 1 pie Change Servings


  1. To Make Lime Filling: In a large mixing bowl, whip cream cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk, lime juice, lime rind, and salt. Whip until mixture is smooth. Pour into graham cracker crust. Cover with plastic wrap and chill thoroughly.
  2. To Make Topping: In a medium bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Add vanilla or lemon extract and confectioners' sugar. Continue to whip until cream forms stiff peaks. Place topping in a fine-mesh sieve and place sieve over a bowl to catch liquid that drains off. Cover topping tightly with plastic wrap and allow to drain for 2 hours.
  3. Before serving, discard liquid that has drained from topping. Spread topping over pie.

Pretty good. More like a key lime cheescake. I don't understand why people think it was too tart--I added more lime juice and zest than the recipe called for! The wipped topping beats any you'll ever find in the store. I made a homemade graham cracker crust, also.

This alleged "dessert" is quite possibly the most dissapointing thing to come from my kitchen. The consistancy was that of old milk and it tasted of rancid potatoe salad with a bit of a lime zing. Long story short, it was bad.... REALLY BAD!

Since moving south I've fallen in love with key lime pie and have been searching for and making recipes for this delight ever since. This has to be the best tasting one I've come across thus far. It help too that it's so easy to make. Wish there were more than 5 stars to give.

Half say too tart, half say just fine. I discovered that hand squeezing made a mild key lime pie/cheesecake, whereas an electric jucier made the pie more tart. I suspect more oils are extracted with the juicer.

My daughter wanted key lime pie for her birthday after having it at a restaurant. I ended up selecting this recipe but added more zest and more juice. It was really yummy and rich BUT in the future I would whip cream and fold it into the filling mixture and then put the works into a pie shell. It would retain the richness but have a lighter texture.

UNBELIEVABLY SPECTACULAR! about 20 years ago I had my first piece of key lime pie at the Breakers hotel in west palm beach FLA. I have looked for years for a recipe that comes close to its excellence and tried more than 100 different recipes with no luck. Until now. This is by far the most magnificent key lime pie on the planet. My tast buds are doing the happy dance!

I can't believe I made something that tastes this amazing! I am a key lime pie aficianado, and this way the best I've ever had. And not too sweet! Very tart and delicious. I'm not sure what others are finding too sweet- it was PERFECT and I can't wait to make it again!

Using reduced fat graham cracker crust, low fat sweetened condensed milk and low fat whipped topping, this was a delicious AND healthy dessert. Key lime pie is one of my husband's favorites, and he loved it.
