I use Persian limes, otherwise known as ordinary supermarket limes, to make my “Key lime” pie. Unless you live in the Florida Keys, key limes are near impossible to find. Furthermore, they’re so tiny that you’d need to juice at least twenty of them for this recipe. No thank you! Ordinary limes make an exceptional Key lime pie, and they are a much better alternative to bracingly tart bottled Key lime juice. This pie tastes every bit as authentic as the real deal — plus it’s easier to make.

Similar to coconut cream pie and lemon meringue pie, key lime pie can be made with a graham cracker/cookie crust or a traditional pie crust. I always opt for a graham cracker crust because it’s quick to prepare. Plus, why fuss with finicky pie dough when a graham cracker crust tastes so good?

What You’ll Need To Make Key Lime Pie

ingredients for key lime pie

  • You’ll need 8 to 10 limes total for this recipe. Choose plump limes that give a little when you squeeze them; they will be easier to juice. You should get about 2 tablespoons of juice from each lime. Be sure to zest the limes before you squeeze the juice from them, as it’s near impossible to do afterward.
  • Sweetened condensed milk is canned milk from which water has been removed, and sugar has been added. Be sure not to confuse it with evaporated milk, which is usually sold right alongside.
  • With no eggs, it may be hard to believe that this pie will set, but have faith — it will.

How To Make Key Lime Pie

Step 1: Make The Crust

brown sugar, graham cracker crumbs and butter in mixing bowl

Combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork first, and then your hands until the mixture is well combined.

Using your fingers and the bottom of a measuring cup or glass, press the crumbs firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in deep-dish pie pan. The crust should be about 1/4-in thick. (Hint: do the sides first.)

Bake the crust for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Then let the crust cool a bit while you make the filling.

Step 2: Make the Filling

Begin by zesting the limes.

It’s best to use a rasp grater, which is a long, skinny tool that works well for grating hard cheeses and zesting citrus.

Let the pie cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly, about 3 hours.

Step 3: Make the Topping

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or beaters), beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat until medium peaks form. (Alternatively, the cream can be beaten by hand with a whisk.) Top the chilled pie with whipped cream and decorate with lime slices and zest.

Made with ordinary limes, this “Key lime” pie tastes every bit as authentic as the real deal — plus it’s easier to make.

Servings: 8 to 10
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes, plus at least 3 hours to chill


For the Crust

  • 1½ cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs, from about 12 whole graham crackers
  • ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

  • Two 14-oz cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (2% or whole milk)
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice

For the Topping

  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 8 to 10 thin lime slices


For the Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F and set an oven rack in the middle position.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter; stir with a fork first, and then your hands until the mixture is well combined. Using your fingers and the bottom of a glass or dry measuring cup, press the crumbs firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 x 1.5-inch (deep-dish) pie pan. The crust should be about ¼-inch thick. (Tip: do the sides first.)
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, until just slightly browned. Let the crust cool on a wire rack.

For the Filling

  1. Lower the oven temperature to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, yogurt, lime zest, and lime juice. Pour the thick mixture into the warm graham cracker crust. Bake for 15 minutes, until the filling is almost set; it should wobble a bit. Let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly, about 3 hours.

For the Topping

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat until medium peaks form. Top the pie with the whipped cream. Decorate with the lime zest and lime slices. Store the pie in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Slice the pie into wedges, wiping your knife clean between slices, and serve cold.
  2. Make-Ahead Instructions: You can make the crust a day ahead of time, but the filling should be added on the day of serving, otherwise the crust will get soggy.
  3. Note: The nutritional information was calculated using 2% Greek yogurt.

  • I made this pie for a special dinner. I loved the make ahead aspect, especially when you have lots of other food prep., but my crust was hard. Was it possible that I was too “firm” when pressing the crumbs in the pie plate, or I overcooked it? The filling was perfect and everyone still really enjoyed it.

    I’ve made this twice, once for myself and once for friends. They are Key Lime fans and they LOVED it.

    I’m known for cutting corners and I did with this too. I bought half the limes and added the prepared lime juice instead. It was still very lime tasting and I loved every bite.

  • I made this pie today and followed the recipe exactly (I used full fat Greek yogurt since I couldn’t find low fat in my market). It was delicious! The pie set nicely and my whole family loved it. My son said it was better than a bakery key lime tart he had the week before (from a very good bakery)! This one’s a keeper for me. I did lightly spray the pie plate prior to adding the crust, but would spray it a little more next time as we had some minor sticking.

  • Hi Jenn,
    I have family that is lactose intolerant and I prepared some lactose free condensed milk. I forgot to account for volume loss and only ended up with about 20 oz. I’m wanting to adjust your recipe slightly and wondered if using 1/2 c lime juice and 3/4 c dairy free sour cream would balance out the missing 8 oz of condensed milk? Or would you do more or less of either?

    • Hi Allie, I’ve never frozen this and wouldn’t think it was a great candidate for freezing, but a few people have mentioned that they have, and have been happy with the results when thawed. Keep in mind though that the crust will not stay crisp if the filling sits inside it (either in the freezer or the fridge). Hope that helps!

  • I wanted to give this recipe 5 stars for the flavor but the crust is a major problem. I’ve made graham cracker crusts before so maybe I should have known this one would be a problem when it didn’t want to hold together as I pressed it into the pie plate. Sure enough, the crust turned into crumbs when I tried slicing the pie. It was impossible to get a nice looking slice with the crust intact.
    Afterwards, I noticed that many of the reviewers said they added extra butter. That tells me there is an issue with the recipe the way it is written.
    I will use this recipe again, now that I know I need to make a revision to the crust. I wish I could have rated it higher because it really is delicious.

    • The only thing I would watch out for with cast iron is that it retains heat for a lot longer than a traditional pie dish after you take it out of the oven. Because the cooling rate is so important for a recipe like this, I’d be interested to see how things work out with cast iron.

  • Hi–I made this recipe and both my husband and I really loved it….very delicious. There were 2 ingredients that I altered a bit. I added 2 more tablespoons of melted butter to the crust and I used 4 fresh regular limes for part of the lime juice (about 1/3rd cup) and I used bottled juice for the remainder since I didn’t have any more limes. Also, if you are baking the crust in a higher end type of oven (mine is a French door Viking Oven), check the crust after 5 minutes of baking. Mine was done well before the 10 minute mark. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe : )

    I made this pie yesterday. It tasted absolutely delicious, but I did have issues – the crust didn’t appear to be enough even using a 23x4cm pie tin – it was too thin. And then, when I removed it from the refrigerator, it was completely stuck to the tin. What could I have done wrong?

    • Hi Ana, I’m sorry you had a problem with this! There should be ample crust so that it’s not too thin and it shouldn’t stick to the pie plate so that’s a bit of a head-scratcher. I saw an earlier comment you left and you didn’t mention using sugar in the crust. Did you omit that? Regardless, it sounds like you may have mismeasured something for the crust. Please LMK if I can help in any other way.

  • So I made this pie a couple of months ago, using lemons instead of limes, and it came out amazingly! So delish! However, this week, I decided to use real key limes instead of Persian limes, and it did not work out. The first day I tasted it, the pie wasn’t as sweet but it was holding up. However, the next day, I noticed this clear-ish, sticky substance leaking from the pie. Does anyone know what happened? The only other change I made was the first time I used a premade pie crust, this week I actually make the crust.

    • I’m sorry to hear you had a bit of a problem with the pie this time around. I don’t believe the key limes would have been the issue as a number of people have commented that they’ve used them successfully. Did you, by any chance, do a meringue topping on the pie instead of a whipped cream topping? If it was whipped cream, it may have been that you underwhipped the cream a bit. Please LMK if I can help in any other way.

  • OMG! What a delicious key lime pie. I had never made one from scratch and I had a bag of regular limes that needed to be used so I looked up a recipe and found yours. It took 10 small limes squeezed for 3/4 cup of juice and 4 of them for the 1 TBSP of zest. I did not have Greek yogurt so I used 1 cup of sour cream. I left off the heavy cream topping and my husband couldn’t get enough of it. He said it was the BEST pie he’s ever had and that it should be entered into a pie contest!!! We enjoyed eating the whole pie over a couple of days. I will definitely be making it again and again and again. Thank you for this delicious easy recipe!!

  • Made this for Memorial Day BBQ. It was fantastic! not a crumb left, literally. My question is can I use the same recipe with lemons? All the Lemon “Ice Box” pie recipes call for eggs. I don’t care about the ice box part, I just want a good creamy lemon pie with graham cracker crust. Does the lemon juice not set up like the lime juice? Thanks for any help!

    • Hi Marie, Glad it was a hit! I’ve never tried it with lemon but some other readers have commented that they have and have enjoyed it (and I think it should set up fine). Please LMK how it turns out!

      • Hi!

        Can you make this with a tart pan? Realized I don’t have a pie dish

        • Hi K, I think this will work in a tart pan. 🙂
