How to Make Delicious Creamy Key Lime Pie
- Make your crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Grease a 9 in pie plate or tart pan.
In the pan or in a bowl, lightly toss the crumbs, sugar and salt until well combined.
Drizzle with melted butter and mix together.
Press the graham cracker crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate ( I used a tart pan ) with your fingertips.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Cool crust and make your filling.
- Make your whipped cream:
Whip cream and confectioners' sugar with an electric mixer on high until peaks form, for about 6 minutes. Fold in vanilla.
I then spoon it into a small freezer bag, cut a small hole in one of the corners and make decorative florets around the inside edge of the pie. Then sprinkle with remaining lime zest.
Keep chilled in refrigerator.
