Key Lime Pie

Pin It
I love that my family started the tradition where the birthday boy/gal gets to pick their birthday cake. My mom used to make a standard cake for each person's birthday, which was great, but it wasn't always what they wanted. And the birthday boy/gal should get what they want on their day, right? So when Chris told me he wanted Key Lime Pie for his birthday instead of a traditional cake, I happily obliged. 
I'm obsessed with these Key Lime Pie Bars, so I used that recipe as the base for this pie. I even made the crust recipe 1.5 times what I usually do since I know Chris loves a graham cracker crust. The pie turned out exactly how I wanted it to and it was done in under 30 minutes. It was sweet, tangy, creamy and decadent. A perfect way to wish my husband a happy birthday. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe



  • 2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 8 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 3 cups sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup key lime juice
  • Cool whip
  • Lime slices
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter until well blended. Press mixture evenly into and up the sides of a 9" or 9.5" pie plate. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until crust is set. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a large bowl mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream and key lime juice together until well combined.

Pour mixture into the cooked crust. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until tiny pinhole bubbles appear on the surface. Remove from oven immediately. 

Allow pie to cool completely. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours prior to serving. Garnish with cool whip and lime slices, if desired.
