Morton’s Key Lime Pie

Morton's Key Lime Pie - only 6 ingredients! Recipe from the famous steakhouse. Tastes amazing! SO easy and SO delicious! Can make ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Morton’s Steakhouse is my favorite steak place. It is my go-to dinner spot when we go to Nashville. I love sitting in the bar and watching people. The last time we ate dinner there, Chicken Legs got the Key Lime Pie. He loved it. He said it was one of the best he has eaten. I have two Morton’s cookbooks and luckily their key lime pie recipe is in one. I decided to give the recipe a try and see how close it came to the original.

I was surprised to see that Morton’s recipe used a Keebler graham cracker crust and lime juice out of the bottle. I would have never guessed. I did make one change, and use key lime juice from the bottle instead of regular lime juice. It turned out delicious. Chicken Legs said it tasted just like the original. Woo Hoo! We can now get our fix without having to take a road trip.

  1. Shelby – I haven't heard that. I wonder if it is true. We are planning on going to Key West in January. Sounds like a good thing to check out!

  2. I've always heard that true "Key Lime Pie" does not contain eggs. The original recipe was the result of little or no refrigeration on Key West. Does anyone know?
