For the crust (or use a store-bought graham cracker crust)

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

For the filling

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream plus more for decorating
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice or lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp lime zest finely grated (optional)


  • In a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Stir until combined then press tightly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Chill the crust for 30 minutes or longer.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment whip up the heavy cream until stiff, then transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • In the same bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat cream cheese at low-medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Add the sweetened condensed milk slowly then beat until smooth and well mixed.
  • Add the whipped cream and mix until combined.
  • With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the key lime juice. The mixture will start to thicken and to get creamy. Continue to mix for 1 more minute.
  • Pour into prepared pie dish and refrigerate for atleast 6 hours or overnight until firm.


Decorating the pie - Garnish the pie after it is firm.  I used whipped cream and lime slices.
Leftovers - Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The pie crust will get softer the longer it is stored.
Serving Tip - Add parchment paper to the bottom of the pie pan for easier removal of pie slices. Using a springform pan makes it easier, too.
Cutting the pie - Run the knife under warm water after each cut for clean slices.
