Key Lime Pie

3 cups sweetened condensed milk

¾ cup key lime juice

½ cup sour cream

1 tablespoon grated lime zest

1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, sour cream, and grated lime zest until well combined.

Pour the mixture into the prepared graham cracker crust and place the pie on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 5 to 8 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of the pie. The filling should be wobbly but not browned.

Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool, then chill thoroughly in the refrigerator for about 1 hour before serving.

Garnish with lime slices and whipped cream, if desired, before serving.

Enjoy your delicious homemade Key Lime Pie!
