Key Lime Pie - Start with the Graham Cracker Crust

The pies always starts with the graham cracker crust and a homemade crust tastes WAY better than the generic store bought one. Simply graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter will do the job. 

Key Lime Pie Filling, What is it?

Time for the best part, the filling. This is where the Dolce Foglia Key Lime Pie flavor added with sour cream, and a couple cans of sweetened condensed milk. Pour all the ingredients into a bowl and just whisk it all together, pour it into your pie shell, bake for 10 minutes and boom - you’ve got yourself a key lime pie that will blow your family and friends away.

Items Needed to Make this Key Lime Pie

Pie Plate - I made this pie in a 9.5 inch pyrex pie plate. Any size is doable, either way you’ll have little extra crust or just make it extra thick. The filling does not expand when baking so it’s as easy as pouring in as much of it into your crust as you can. 

The truth is, I’m more of an eater when it comes to pies and cakes, not a decorator. Are you the same as me? Sweet, then you’ll appreciate my no-nonsense attitude to the whipped cream topping.
