Key lime pie is cool, creamy, sweet and yet a little bit tart. It is so delicious on a summer’s evening. If you’ve never made key lime pie before, you’ll be surprised how easy it is.

Rich and creamy key lime pie

I love limes. Their citrus flavor is so refreshing. I honestly think summer wouldn’t be complete without a cool, creamy, sweet yet tart key lime pie. THIS key lime pie is DIVINE. It’s very rich and creamy. With this key lime pie recipe, you can make either two smaller pies or one very large pie. When I baked this pie, I found it took a little longer to bake in the oven than stated in the recipe. However, oven’s do vary. So, I baked my key lime pie for 20 minutes instead of 15 minutes.

Once it’s chilled and just prior to serving, top it with fresh whipped cream or a sprinkling of powdered sugar. That’s all it needs. If you give this beautiful key lime pie a try, let me know. I’d love to hear how it turned out for you.
