My husband heard about an amazing – and easy – saltine-crusted lime pie on the radio the other day and couldn’t stop talking about it until I made it. So I made it for him. Yum!

I LOVE key lime pie. While this is not quite as mouth-watering as my favorite key lime pie, the fact that it has only six ingredients (seven if you count the whipped cream on top) and it was so mind-blowingly easy to make means that I will be making it again and again.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
  • ⅓ cup softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Filling:
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • ½ cup lime juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Crush the crackers (small crumbs) in a large plastic zippered bag. Add cracker crumbs to a medium bowl and add the sugar, then butter. Knead until the crumbs hold together like dough. Press crust into an 8 inch pie pan. Bake for 18 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown.
  3. Cool the crust slightly. Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks into the sweetened condensed milk, then beat in the lime juice until completely combined.
  4. Pour into the pie shell and bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the filling has set. Cool slightly and then chill in refrigerator until pie is completely cooled.
  5. Serve with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of sea salt.

The filling is delicious (creamy and slightly tart) but the unique saltine cracker crust makes the pie extra special. If you prefer the taste of lemon, it’s totally fine to substitute lemon juice for the lime.

Now I’m craving another piece….

My husband heard this recipe on the radio (I’m sure it was NPR) but I’m not sure about the origins of the recipe. I modified it slightly from what he sent me.
