Recipe: Easy Key Lime Pie

Easy to make and so yummy.


  • 1 graham cracker pie crust, store bought, or make your own
  • 1 can Key Lime pie filling
  • 1 tub Cool Whip


All you need to do is put the Key Lime filling on the graham cracker crust. Top with a generous amount of cool whip. Chill for several hours. See how easy it is and it is so delicious. We made this on vacation one year. It was quick and only takes 3 ingredients.

We also do this with Banana cream pie filling. Its so easy and so good.

I worked for Tippins for 22 years starting in 1982. The recipe calls for a graham shell - homemade would be best. You can take 1 pkg graham crackers and 1/4 cup sugar and crush them in a ziploc baggie with a rolling pin, soup can, anything that rolls. Add a stick of butter that has been melted and cooled with a tbsp. vanilla a little at a time until you reach a good consistency to form your shell. Always use a small juice glass, measuring cup, etc to form your shell and place another empty pie plate on top of it to keep the form. Bake your shell first before filling but only for 1 - 3 minutes at a very low temperature.
As far as the filling, you should use lime juice and lemon juice instead of zest. We used to use the real juice straight from Florida. If you use real juice, the zest will be in it. The gelatin must be dissolved separately with a reserve of the juice (warmed) and added slowly to your mixture. It should go like this:
Sweetened condensed milk first
Room temperature lime and lemon juice
Gelatin mixture "slowly"

Allow the mixture to set but only long enough to run a spatula through it and leave a trail (not a jello consistency). Fold (do not stir) mixture then pour slowly into the shell.

Bake for 1-3 minutes but you need to watch it. This only sets the filling. Once the edges bubble it needs to get out of the heat. Store it in a refrigerator of better yet, a freezer to stop the warming process then allow it to sit until it is back to room temperature.

The topping is basic homemade whipped cream (I add vanilla) with a lime or lemon garnish on top.

I am sorry I cannot be specific about measurements. That would compromise what Price Chopper, Dierbergs, Hen House, etc. are still doing with our formulas. I hope this helps. Let me know what you think.
