  • Recipe

    Classic Key Lime Pie

    This classic includes a flaky pastry crust, billowy whipped-cream topping, and of course a silky, aromatic sweet-tart custard filling. If you can’t find fresh Key limes, you can substitute common lime juice, which will be tart but without the floral notes found in Key limes.

    This may look like pumpkin pie, but it tastes nothing like it—it's sweet and tangy, with a delicate mousse-like texture.
