Key Lime Pie Squares

My favorite pie is key lime. The tartness of the lime, the creamy, rich condensed milk, and the sour cream make key lime pie a decedent dessert that is incredibly easy to make. For this recipe, I have transformed the classic pie into squares, making it perfect for you to serve at your next dinner party or family gathering. Happy cooking! Video link!

Chef notes:

I didn't use key limes in this recipe which are hard to come by in Calgary and quite expensive when they are available. I would recommend using them if they are available to you!

I used Schär Gluten Free Honeygrams for this recipe but regular graham crumbs or graham crackers work just as well.

Specialty equipment:

Food processor

9x13 pan

Stand mixer

Graham Crust

3 cups graham crumbs

½ cup sugar

½ tsp salt

½ cup butter, melted but not hot

Lime Filling

2 cans of sweetened condensed milk

½ cup full-fat sour cream

2 tbsp lime zest

1½ cups fresh lime juice

Whipped Topping

2 cups heavy cream

3 tbsp icing sugar

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Lime zest for garnish

For the crust

  • Place the honeygrams into a food processor and blend them finely.

  • Combine the crumbs in a large mixing bowl with the sugar, salt, and melted butter.

  • Press the crumbs evenly and firmly into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

  • Place the pan in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

For the filling

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • Whisk the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until combined.

  • Pour the filling over the frozen crust and bake for 15–18 minutes, just until the filling is set.

  • Remove the pan from the oven and cool completely before topping it.

Finishing the squares

  • Put the cream, icing sugar, and vanilla into the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Whisk on high until stiff peaks form.

  • Turn off the mixer and place the cream into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.

  • Pipe the cream over the whole top of the squares.

  • Garnish the top with lime zest, cut into squares, and serve!
