1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
4 oz of key lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 graham cracker pie crust
Optional: Lime zest and whipped cream
Place softened cream cheese (microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for 15 seconds if you are crunched for time) and sweetened condensed milk in a mixing bowl.
Using an electric hand mixer, starting on low, begin mixing the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk.
Continue to increase speed of mixer until cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk is smooth and creamy.
Add the vanilla and whip together.
Lastly, add the key lime juice. Start using the lowest setting as it will splash a little to start. Steadily increase speed until everything is thoroughly mixed and it looks all creamy and luscious. You absolutely do not want clumps at this stage.
Pour the key lime pie mixture into the ready made pie shell.
Place in refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours. Overnight is better, even best. (Place in freezer for 30 to 45 minutes if you’re crunched for time. But we highly recommend letting it set in the refrigerator for the recommended amount of time.)
Zest a lime for additional color like we did and a dollop of whipped cream is always welcome.
