FOOD // key lime pie is the most delicious and easy dessert you ever need to make

WOW. There have been a lot of videos lately! For people just visiting the blog, I do not live only with camera in hand.

My family is somewhat addicted to key lime pie; it's kind of distressing. Luckily it is incredibly quick and easy to make. Here's how, in words and (a new venture) video.

for the crust:
1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter
combine, shape in 9" pie plate, and bake at 375º for 8 minutes. remove and cool.

for the filling:
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c key lime juice
3 egg yolks
combine and pour into cooled crust. bake at 375º for 15 mins. remove and chill until serving.

enjoy! :)

ps: guest posting here today about completely changing your room. one weekend, very low budget, very fun. check it out!


  1. Mmm...Olivia, that video made me STARVING. :]

  2. I am making this. It's official. <3

  3. Yummy pie!!!! I'm so going to make that!

  4. Yum. Unfortunately I'm allergic to eggs. But that looks amazingly good!

  5. that looks so yummy! I think I might have to make it really soon. ;)

  6. ooh, that looks really good! I am going to make that one ASAP. :)

  7. Hey Olivia,

    I was just wondering..how do you get your "subscribe" thingy on the side where it shows how many readers you have?? I have the "follow via e-mail" gadget on mine, but it doesn't show how many readers I have until I go on design, look at the stats, blah blah blah. :P Any tips?

    Also~~your drop down thingy works for me now! Yesh! Back to my favorite activity ever...click click click...;) Oh, and another question (haha, I'm bombarding you): HOW in the world do you get ahold of such amazing fonts??! I can't find good ones ANYWHERE! :P

  8. I never knew it was that easy! This is the best recipe I have ever seen- the shorter and easier, the more likely I won't ruin it and have my oven catch fire. :) But I love key lime pie and I'm excited to try it!

  9. the video is adorable! did you make it? what did you film it with?

  10. As soon as I saw this I asked my dad to run to the grocery store.

    Delicious. It just got out of the oven and I am in love.

    Thank you Olivia!

  11. @ Lucia: I think Feedburner offers it... the writing on the video is my handwriting, except for the "bake at 375º" bits, those are in Callie Hand.

    @ Charming: Yes, we did. We filmed it with Em's Nikon D3100 and edited it with iMovie.

  12. Nice video Olivia! Thanks for sharing! :) And I'll go check out your guest post!

  13. I love key lime pie! And because our eggs are home-laid and make the pie yellow too, I put in two drops of green food coloring. I use the America's Test Kitchen recipe and it comes out great every time. :)

  14. @ Ellyn: ours are too. I kind of like the yellow, it's very cheerful.

  15. I just recently discovered key lime pie. Y.U.M!!

  16. You go girl! 700 followers! That's really awesome! :) Keep on being awesome!


  17. That pie looks yummy!! I must try it. :)

  18. i'm so going to make this! (i think i told you that in another comment, oh well : )
    i'm australian, so i have australian mesurements. do you think i can still make it? i suppose i'd have to try and convert it into my measurements. and find australian ingredients to supplement your's!
    can't wait to get stuck in : )

  19. I shall definitely try this soon. I love how you had your own handwriting in the video. So creative!
