Key lime Pie. Cool and creamy Key lime pie is a tangy, sweet treat. Sample best-of-the-best variations, all from Food Network stars. This pie is tasty no matter how you slice it.

Key lime Pie All of the KLP we have had in Florida (including very recently) has been smooth creamy and sometimes even very light as if whipped cream had been added. Can you use regular limes instead of Key limes? You can use regular limes in place of Key limes in any Key lime recipe. You can cook Key lime Pie using 8 ingredients and 5 steps. Here is how you achieve that.

Key limes are a bit more tart than their traditional counterparts, but the results of this substitution will still be delicious. This is the gold standard of key lime pie recipes. I live in Cuba where key limes are abundant, but Cuba also juices those limes and packages them in small boxes that contain about one cup each. I have tried both ways, with fresh key limes and that packaged lime juice and there is absolutely no difference.

Key lime Pie step by step

  1. In a mixer put the biscuits until its finely crushed..
  2. Add melted butter and mix and transfer in a loose bottom tin. Press it and refrigerate for 10 minutes..
  3. Whip the condensed milk and cream and add lime juice and zest until it thickens. Pour into the base and let it chill for couple of hours..
  4. Remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Cut into slice.
  5. I have used green colour with lime juice to decorate and sprinkled some lime zest..

But that is Cuban lime juice. If Key limes aren't available in your grocery store, look for bottled Key lime juice near the other bottled lime juices. Cool the baked crust, and add the Key lime filling. Key lime pie ingredients are simple: sweetened condensed milk, lots of lime zest and juice (preferably from key limes), and just enough egg to give it a good set. Pour the filling into a pre-baked graham cracker crust, bake briefly until the pie is set, and let it chill.
