Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts: Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie



This weekend while our son was at his Grandparents we got to go out for dinner with friends!  Somewhat of a luxury for us.  So instead of ordering dessert at the restaurant, I made dessert so they could come back to our house and hang out for a little while.  The guys work together, and through the grape vine I heard that it was suggested by one of them that I find a way to make Key Lime Pie so my husband could bring it into work.  So instead of making mini pies, I decided I would just make it for the guys this weekend in the full pie form.  I even spoiled them with homemade whipped cream!  I must admit, this was only because I was out of the squirty kind from a bottle :)  Or as that is known in my house growing up "Squirty Cream". 

Key Lime Pie is super easy to make.  You have the Graham Cracker Crust, and then the filling of the pie is 3 ingredients!  You really can't get much simpler.  Now, I know that there is some debate...to meringue or not to meringue.  Well I have never meringued on a Key Lime Pie, so I didn't start this time.  The idea does intrigue me though, so maybe sometime I will try it. 

I have no idea where this recipe is from.  It is just jotted down on a post it, in my recipe box.  I know I have been making it for at least 7 years, but I don't know how I got it in the beginning.

I absolutely love homemade whipped cream. I've been spoiled with it my entire life because my dad always whipped it up. It's so easy to make it's almost a sin to buy cool whip or "squirty cream" in my house.

So easy to make and so very tasty. I've never leaned in the meringue direction...whipped cream for the win! :)

Looks so good! I love lime and lemon flavored desserts in summer: so light and refreshing. And I second briarrose--whipped cream over meringue any day of the week! :)

Hope you had a relaxing, kid-free evening.

Inviting friends back to your house for dessert is a great way to do some easy, laid back entertaining. And your pie sounds amazing.

Congrats on Top 9, and we all have to appreciate the post-it survived for 7 years. I'm thankful you started blogging so all of your wonderful recipes stay in your blog! ;-) I love key lime pie and always want to eat homemade one. You said it's easy and I'm intrigued. I bookmark this because I can only bake "easy" desserts for now. =)

You really appreciate a night out with friends when your kids are young! I know this pie is a winner if you've been making it for 7 years! Love key lime pie, but have never made it. You're on a roll with the Top 9 - Congrats!

I've been thinking about key lime pie around here for days. I just used up the last of my lemon curd - what was holding me back - now to eye up those limes!
