  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cans sweetened, condensed milk 14 ounces each
  • 1 cup key lime juice
  • 1/2 heaping cup of sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Using a food processor, finely grind the graham crackers. Pour the crumbs into a bowl.
  • Measure out the sugar, and pour it into the bowl with the crumbs.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave or in a pan on the stove top. Pour the butter over the crumbs and sugar, and mix thoroughly.
  • Spoon the mixture into a 9 inch glass pie plate, and press down firmly and evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the dish.
  • Bake the crust for 8 minutes. Then remove from the oven, and set on top of a wire rack to cool.
  • Raise the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In another bowl, combine the condensed milk, key lime juice, sour cream, and lime zest thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust, and bake for 7 minutes, being careful not to brown the top.
  • Remove the pie from the oven, and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
  • When the pie is cool, place it in the refrigerator until chilled.
  • Serve as is or with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
