Mini Key Lime Pies


for 6 pies


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 ½ teaspoons
    lime zest, grated
  • ½ cup
    lime juice, 3-4 limes (118 mL)
  • 14 fl oz
    sweetened condensed milk (414 mL)


  • 11 crackers graham cracker
  • 3 tablespoons
    granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons

Whipped cream

  • ¾ cup
    heavy cream (177 mL)
  • ¼ cup
    confectioners sugar (120 g)
  • 1 tablespoon
    lime zest



  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C).
  2. Make the filling: Whisk the egg yolks and lime zest in a medium bowl until tinted light green, about 2 minutes.
  3. Beat in the lime juice and condensed milk, then set aside at room temperature to thicken.
  4. Make the crust: Crush the graham crackers in a zip-top bag, then mix in the sugar and butter. Divide the crumbs between a 6-cup muffin tin and press down to form crusts.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  6. Pour filling into the crusts, then bake until the center is slightly jiggly, 15-17 minutes.
  7. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled, 2-3 hours.
  8. Make the whipped cream: In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric hand mixer and slowly add the sugar. Once soft peaks form, add the lime zest, then whip until firm peaks form.
  9. Top the mini pies with whipped cream.
  10. Enjoy!
