No Bake Key Lime Pie - A Family Feast

No-Bake Key Lime Pie

Yield: 8 slices 1x
Prep: 20 minutes plus overnight to setCook: 15 minutesTotal: 35 minutes plus overnight to set



2 sleeves graham crackers (18 crackers)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/8th teaspoon salt

10 tablespoons melted butter (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons)


16 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon Key lime zest

6 tablespoons Key lime juice

1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar

1/2 cup heavy cream


1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

Additional lime zest or lime slices for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the graham crackers into a food processor and process to crumbs.
  3. Add brown sugar and salt and process for a few seconds to incorporate.
  4. Add melted butter and process long enough to blend the butter into the crumb mixture.
  5. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 10” pie plate.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes then cool while you make the filling.
  7. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese for three minutes on high until light and creamy. Scrape the bowl.
  8. Add the sweetened condensed milk, Key lime zest, Key lime juice and confectioner’s sugar and beat to combine.
  9. Beat the cream to stiff peaks in a separate bowl and fold into the filling.
  10. Scrape the filling into the baked crust and refrigerate overnight.
  11. If the filling is a bit runny, fill the crust to the crust top and chill it along with the remaining filling for 30 minutes. By then the filling will have thickened enough to spread the remaining filling into a mound on top of the pie.
  12. Chill overnight or until firm.
  13. When ready to serve, whip the cream to soft peaks and add the powdered sugar then whip again to stiff peaks.
  14. Place in a piping bag with a star tip and pipe onto the pie in some sort of decorative fashion and garnish with either lime slices or lime zest.
  15. Cut and serve.
