Best Key Lime Pie with Sour Cream

This recipe came about by accident. I needed a dessert for a last-minute dinner party. I didn’t have some of the ingredients for my regular key lime pie, so I had to improvise. OMG! Such a delicious accident. Everyone LOVED the pie. I didn’t have any leftovers – much to Chicken Legs’ dismay. I ended up making another pie the next day so he could have another slice.

How to Make Sour Cream Key Lime Pie

This Sour Cream Key Lime Pie is very easy to make. Start with a graham cracker crust. You can make your own or use a store-bought crust. Next whisk together sweetened condensed milk, key lime zest, key lime juice, sour cream, and egg yolks. Pour the key lime mixture into the crust and bake. Once the pie has cooled slightly, pop it in the refrigerator until it is nice and cold.

You can use regular limes if you can’t find key limes. You can also use bottled key lime juice and skip the zest if key limes aren’t readily available.

Can Key Lime Pie be Made in Advance?

You can make this pie a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. I actually prefer to make this ahead of time. It gives the pie time to set up and the flavors to really develop. I haven’t frozen the pie, but I think it would work just fine.

We like to serve this pie with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and lime zest. You can also top the pie with a small tub of cool whip.

We love key lime pie and this version has quickly become a favorite. Here are a few of our other favorite key lime pie recipes from the blog if you want to check them out:
