Key lime juice brings bold citrus flavor to this easy-to-make pie.

Ingredients

1
Pillsbury™ Pet-Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1
egg
1
can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1
tablespoon grated lime peel
1/3
cup Key lime juice or regular lime juice
1
cup Cool Whip™ frozen whipped topping, thawed
Additional grated lime peel, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Place cookie sheet on oven rack. Heat oven to 375°F. Let 1 crust thaw 10 to 20 minutes. Prick bottom and around side thoroughly with fork. Bake on cookie sheet 9 to 11 minutes or until very light golden brown.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in egg and condensed milk. Beat in 1 tablespoon lime peel and the lime juice. Spread over crust.
  • 3 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool 30 minutes. Cover loosely; refrigerate at least 3 hours until chilled. Just before serving, top with whipped topping. Garnish with additional lime peel. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

Expert Tips

Key limes, grown in Florida, are smaller and rounder than the common, more familiar green--or Persian--limes, and their color is more yellow than green. Although Key limes are less widely available than the common lime, bottled Key lime juice is generally available. Either lime works well in this recipe.

If you like your Key lime pie to have a green color instead of the characteristic yellow, beat in a few drops green food color with the condensed milk.
