Watch the video for this recipe:

Key Lime Pie is an elegant and delicate dessert perfect for holidays or any other occasion. It has a smooth, silky, tart and sweet filling that makes a great impression everywhere.


The recipes is very easy to prepare, the filling is made with sweetened condensed milk and it requires only few minutes to bake. It is important to let it chill for several hours to set completely.


Though many recipes uses whipping cream as topping the classic recipe is made with meringue topping, so feel free to try both versions. For a meringue topping use the one I’ve used on S’mores Tart. Enjoy!

I did this today, it was a huge success! I was unable to add the topping as the whipping cream I purchased was bad (I believe cold was not preserved) and it got separated as soon as I started to whip. Either way the result was amazing my boyfriend was really happy. Thanks a lot! Your posts are really self explannatory and really easy to make!
