Keylime Pie Crust Ingredients
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. chopped slivered almonds
  • 1/4 c. sugar
Keylime Pie Filling Ingredients
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 t. grated keylime peel
  • 1/3 cup keylime juice (2 limes)
  • Whipping cream, whipped and sweetened
  • Seedless raspberry jam (optional)
  • Blueberries and lime slices for garnish (optional)

Keylimes are smaller and more tart than regular limes. You can use either in this keylime pie recipe.

In a large skillet, melt butter. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Combine flour and remaining crust ingredients in melted butter.

Cook, over medium-high heat, 3 to 4 minutes until mixture is medium golden and crumbly, stirring constantly. Reserve 1/4 cup crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture, using back of fork, firmly into bottom and up sides of 9-inch pie pan. Cool completely.

In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks. Gradually add condensed milk; mix well. Stir in lime peel. Add lime juice a little at a time, stirring after each addition.

Fold mixture into egg whites. Pour into crust and freeze about 3 hours or until set.

Just before serving, allow to soften a few minutes. To serve, microwave jam for a couple minutes until very loose and spread on plate. Lay pie slice on top, add whipped cream, blueberries and lime slices and sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
