KISS Key Lime Pie

Bobbi Gulla


I spent 4 months the hot summer of 2010 making at least 3 pies a week to come up with the ultimate key lime pie. I call it KISS for Keep It Simple Stupid! NO ONE can screw up using this recipe. The only time I ruined it was 1 time when I fell asleep & burnt the crust. ;-)

This recipe was published on-line but I can't remember the name of the web site.

Any unskilled baker can make this recipe!!!

Some people like whipped cream on their pie [they say it cuts the tartness], so I'll include it on the recipe. But my personal taste says "eat it plain & pucker up"...

How to Make KISS Key Lime Pie


  1. Preheat oven
  2. Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
  3. Eggs [yolks only] in bowl
  4. Accent
  5. Adding Accent to yolks
  6. Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime juice. Using "the good stuff" is a MUST! If you use regular lime juice from a green plastic lime-shaped container... What can I say, you get what you pay for. ;-)
  7. Pouring lime juice into bowl
  8. Wisking yolks, milk & juice. You can wisk it by hand [no problem] but I prefer the consistency when I use the electric mixer using the wisk attachment. I usually wisk, working speed up to high. Then I beat for 1 full minute. I don't know if I'm being ridiculous, but I spent a whole summer trying variations to get this to perfection. "Knock on wood!" I wouldn't want to jinx it... And a bit of salt over the shoulder too. hahahaha
  9. Ready made graham pie crust

    Put mixture into crust
  10. Put pie into oven
  11. Bake @ 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Do NOT OVERCOOK!!!!! Texture gets gritty if overdone.
  12. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour
  13. Chill in refridgerator for at least 4 hours. You can tell its done when you cut a slice and its "set". If pie falls into space where piece was, it not done. ;-)
  14. Cut a piece & enjoy!!!

    Some people like it with my homemmade whipped cream. I prefer to eat it plain; I LIKE the tartness. To each his/her own.
