We had this pie in a Miami Beach restaurant back in the 50's and begged for the recipe. It's been a family favorite.

How to Make Mom's Key Lime Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare 9” graham cracker crust, cool.

    You might like this Graham cracker crust better than the store ones.

    12 whole graham crackers, crushed
    3 T. brown sugar
    6 T. butter

    350 degrees for 12”
  • 2Mix 1 can Borden’s Eagle Brand milk with ½ cup fresh lime, Key Lime or lemon juice. Stir until it thickens. Add green food coloring carefully.
  • 3Pour into cooled crust and cover with ½ pint of whipped sweetened cream (I like heavy cream as it holds up longer). Refrigerate. Best if cut after it has chilled well.
