Key Lime Pie Recipe

Key Lime Pie Recipe

A key lime pie in a graham cracker crust. Dollops of whipped cream are around the edge of the pie and two slices of lime are in the middle. Limes and forks are beside the pie.

There’s nothing quite like a perfect Key Lime Pie. That graham cracker crust filled with a bright and zippy but totally creamy filling is meant to be your dessert this week. 



Sometimes you just gotta yell it to make it known. I’ve been making key lime pie since I got married 16 years ago and this is the ultimate recipe. It all started with key lime pie that Cade had while serving a mission for 2 years in Brazil. It’s called Torta de Limão in Brazil and while we adore this recipe for bars, our pie needed to have that Florida key lime vibe so I’ve been testing and testing off and on for years until this year I decided to throw in a little sour cream and bam! Deliciousness is served. 

What Ingredients are Needed for a Classic Key Lime Pie?

This recipe is so simple that it’s dangerous! You only need a few ingredients, and you’ll likely have several of them on hand already. Making this recipe actually reminds me of making my mom’s famous lemon meringue pie. Fresh citrus just makes the best desserts ever! Here is your grocery store list:

  • Graham Cracker Crust: graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: gives the pie it’s sweetness and creaminess
  • Sour Cream: adds creaminess and tartness
  • Lime Zest: flavor, flavor, flavor
  • Lime Juice: squeeze your own juice or buy bottled key lime juice, I always recommend fresh!
  • Egg Yolks: add so much richness
  • Stabilized Whipped Cream: water, gelatin, heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla

The measurements for each ingredient can be found in the recipe card below.

  3. Pour mixture into the prepared pie crust.

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Creamy deviled egg filling creates the dressing that coats each bite of this deviled egg potato salad. Chunks of potato and hard-boiled eggs are tossed with the dressing to make the ultimate potato salad for anyone who loves deviled eggs.

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

I love a cold potato salad in the summertime – or let’s be honest, any other time as well. Potato salad is an awesome side dish for almost any meal.

I’ve shared quite a few potato salads with you over the years and I still love coming up with new ones. I first shared this deviled egg potato salad 3-4 years ago and it’s been a big hit.

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Served with Grilled Chicken or a juicy steak or steak bites, potato salad is a side dish everyone loves. In the mood for hot dogs, corn dogs, or a burger? Potato salad works there too.

You can use any potato you like to make potato salad. However, I love the thin-skinned Yukon Gold potatoes.

There’s no need to peel the gold potatoes and the texture stays nice for the salad. If you decide to use russets or red potato, you’ll want to peel the potatoes for the best results.

This pesto tilapia is tender, flaky and so fresh with that delicious basil pesto on top. The perfect light and healthy meal for a busy weeknight.

I’ve always said that I don’t eat fish, so clearly I’m here today to bring you a delicious Pesto Tilapia. And I’m serious, it’s delicious. But! I will deny it if you tell my husband. He will then think he has to make me eat even more seafood, and I still just can’t do it. I really do hate it. Man, I wish I didn’t, and I am trying to like seafood. I have come around to like a few salmon recipes. My latest favorite is our teriyaki salmon rice bowl.

In fact, I was kind of chuckling to myself the other day that I even have a seafood section on the site here. I mean, there are so few recipes in there. But I’m working on it! You don’t have to be a genius to figure out my preferred tastes there do ya. And this all got me thinking, I love food, and people know that, but there’s a ton we don’t know about each other. SOOOOO, I think we should chat…

5 Things You May Not Know About Me

  1. I hate being called, Carr. I’ll probably never admit it to your face because I hate that it makes people feel bad, but I cringe when people call me that.
  2. I played the flute and piccolo from ages 10-19, and then I stopped and I haven’t played since. It’s one of my biggest regrets ever. I wish I’d gone ahead and studied music in school like I had always planned until my senior year of high school
  3. I have a fear of falling and knocking my teeth out. True story. I pinch my mouth closed when walking down stairs etc. as if it’s actually going to protect them or something. So ironic now since I did knock my teeth out about a year ago. Have you read about the bike crash? Wh

Jammy Hard Boiled Eggs

Jammy hard boiled eggs are fantastic on their own with just a bit of salt or when added to salads, sandwiches, and pasta. These are perfectly set boiled eggs with firm whites and “jammy,” slightly runny yolks. They’re egg heaven!

What is a Jammy Egg?

If you have never heard of a jammy egg, let me introduce you to your new favorite egg. What is a jammy egg? It’s just another term for a soft-boiled egg with a runny yolk.

I’ve loved boiled eggs my whole life, but I recently discovered this method that delivers jammy hard-boiled eggs every single time. It used to be a happy accident when my boiled eggs turned out jammy, but now? We’ve cracked the secret.

The flavor and texture of the eggs is so much better with a soft, runny yolk. And, this method gets bonus points for requiring very little effort. That’s a win-win, in my book. Jammy eggs are fabulous as a snack with salt and pepper.

Salted sliced hard boiled eggs

If you typically avoid making your own boiled eggs because of the hassle of peeling them, then I have good news for you. I am sharing the secret of shelling eggs with ease, and it’s nothing more than cold water.

When the timer goes off, rinse the eggs for a minute or two under cold water. As soon as the pan is cool, keep the eggs in the cold wat
