I've made this pie more times than I can count over the past couple of years, and it is the one people always seem to want when I let them pick a pie for their birthday, Thanksgiving, etc. And that's saying a lot since I make a killer banana cream pie, coconut cream pie, grasshopper pie, ricotta pie, German chocolate pie, peanut butter pastry cream pie - all of which are much more work. I have found that this pie actually sets up in just a couple of hours, so I don't know where that 8 hours comes from. This is the pie I make when I suddenly realize I need a pie for a potluck that night. One person mentioned a weird texture, and I have had that happen when I had the heat up too high. You need to heat this on medium low, which will take a little longer, but the texture will get grainy if you get it too hot. And you do need to stir constantly. Also, instead of using the white chocolate chips, you can use 11 ounces of good quality white chocolate bars, chopped, to add just a little more quality to the taste and texture, but it doesn't make a tremendous amount of difference.
I get great reviews every time I make this. I make my own crust though and put it in mini muffin and normal muffin sized silicon pans. The only tricky part is getting the tarts to pop out of the form without breaking. I agree these need a garnish but the recipe is super easy and impressively delicious! My go-to.
This my third time making this easy pie. I think its delicious!! I have had many requests for the recipe, and in my book thats high praise! I hate making pies, but this one is a snap! I do add about twice the amount of zest and pour in a little more key lime juice b/c I like things a little more tangy.
I have a lot of better key lime pie recipes than this one. Flavor was just OK. I don't understand why the 9 inch pie crust. It barely filled half the plate. I had to pipe whipped cream around the edges to hide this appearance since I was serving this to guests. My suggestion would be if you make this pie use a 8 inch graham crust.
This is a great recipe - very easy to make. Only drawback which can also be an advantage is the 8 hour chill time. I made it, whipped up and extra 1/2 cup of whipping cream and piped it around the edge, then garnished it with fresh raspberries. Looked and tasted like an expensive pastry shop dessert!
We made this easy dessert for a 50 Men Who Cook event. We got many positive comments on this dessert. Tastes good and easy to prepare! We made 12 pies in under one and one half hour. Then just let it sit overnight and cut as we needed the pieces!
This is definitely an easy pie to make but just okay on taste. It left me wanting a true key-lime pie which has a stronger flavor. The white chocolate makes this pie creamier but you can't tell or taste, rather that white chocolate is one of the ingredients. This pie also had a strange texture to me.
I thought this recipe turned out well. Very simple crowd pleaser.
I make this with mini pie crusts so everyone gets their own tart. It is easy and I get rave reviews.
I made this for easter last year and it got rave reviews. I used gluten-free gingersnaps to make an allergy-friendly crust and I loved the contrast in flavors. Easy and will make again for sure.
The easiest pie that I make, and it's so delicious! This is a summer favorite for us, we make it whenever having people over and we always have people requesting the recipe. It has great flavors, absolutely fantastic.
This recipe was so easy to make and tasted wonderful! Family loved it and fought over who got the last slice.
This pie is delicious and super easy to make! It has quickly become a favorite in my house and I plan to make it to take to several summer events. When I first made the recipe, I didn't have sour cream so I substituted vanilla yogurt and I think it made it even more flavorful. I will make it with vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream from now on. My husband said it was better than any steakhouse key lime pie he'd ever had. You won't be disappointed in trying this recipe!
This was so easy and really yummy. I made it twice for my girlfriends and everyone loved it!
This is an AWESOME dessert. I added a bit more lime zest to the recipe. I made it in individual tart shells for a dinner party. I topped each with whipped cream to which I added lime zest, sugar, and vanilla. I decorated each serving with a twist of lime andraspberries. Very impressive even if I say so myself.
When I first read the ingredients for this recipes, I was scared because of the large amount of white chocolate. However after I made the pie, the white chocolate was barely noticeable and creates a great texture. This recipe is a winner.
This pie couldn't be any easier, and it's so good. My husband makes a key lime cheesecake, and this has a very similar taste and texture for a fraction of the effort. I made this for a family gathering, and everyone loved it. Next time I'll know to make two pies!
Fabulous! I like key lime pie - and this variation was divine. I added toasted coconut to the crust and that was a nice addition. One of the best things about key lime pie is how easy it is to throw together, this was no different. VERY easy!
great recipe - i used the mini-grahm cracker tart shells by keebler. the recipe made 12 tarts and i garnished each with a little sliver of lime. i sent 24 of these mini-pies to my fiance's work for secretary's week and got rave reviews. it keeps it cleaner and everyone gets their own.
This was quite good! I didn't want to use heavy cream so I used a large tub of reduced fat whipped topping instead. I melted the white chocolate chips and mixed them in with the whipped topping. I then mixed in the juice and zest. I also substituted yogurt for sour cream. I popped the pie in the freezer for about 20 minutes as I wanted to serve it right away. Just 20 minutes gave it enough time to set up! I really liked the taste of the pie and will make it again.
This is a delicious easy recipe to make. Just looks a little plain. Needs a garnish! I would definitely make it again.
This was quite simply the best Key Lime pie recipe I've ever made. Not only was it the easiest, it was the best tasting with great texture. I used bottled Key Lime juice which probably helped it stay tart and not overly sweet (a failure of most other Key Lime pie recipes).
