Recipe: Easy No-Bake Key Lime Pie

Key-lime pie is one of my mom's favorite desserts, and since we were celebrating her birthday at home this year (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), I decided to make one for her.  One of my friends had posted a key lime pie recipe on her Instagram story, so I used the recipe she had used, which was from Grilled Cheese Social's blog

The recipe called for a pre-made Graham Cracker Pie Crust, but since I had a box of Graham Cracker Crumbs, I made my pie crust using 1 1/2 cups of crumbs, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/3 cup of melted butter).

Graham Cracker Crumbs and Sugar

Add melted butter

Stir until well combined

Press into 9" round baking pan

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes

To make the key lime filling, since I was not able to find key lime juice at the market, I made my own using fresh lemons and fresh limes (1/4 cup of each).

Combine juice with a 14 ounce can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

Stir juice and milk

Fold in 3/4 tub of Cool Whip (I used Lite)

Pour mixture into baked pie crust

Let set in the refrigerator for at least one hour

Decorate with sliced limes (if you have leftover limes)

Slice and serve
We all really enjoyed the pie - it was very sweet and tart! The crust was delicious too!
