An easy recipe for homemade No-Bake Key Lime Pie Jars. Creamy and velvety zesty key lime over buttery graham crackers in individual-sized servings.
We really enjoy no-bake desserts here, especially during the summer. Whether it’s a parfait like our peanut butter or a fancy black forest cheesecake, no bakes are wonderful!
key lime pie in jars-
We love a good Key Lime Pie recipe. Though this recipe can be made into a pie, it’s so gorgeous in jars (or glasses). The pie mixture is so smooth and creamy and goes so well with the crushed graham crackers. These are so cute and great to make for parties, and best of all – it’s completely a no-bake!
NOTE: If you’d rather make it in pie form, go for it. Completely prepare the recipe per instructions and just an 8” pie pan (see image farther in the post).
how to make easy key lime-
PREPARE CRUST: Crush graham crackers in a plastic bag with a rolling pin until crumbly and fine. Add melted butter to the crumbs and mix to combine.
PREPARE FILLING: Beat together the cream cheese with the condensed milk, lime juice, and zest and sugar until a creamy consistency. TIP: So you don’t have lumps in your mixture, be sure the cream cheese is room temperature.
Add some of the crumbly and buttery crust to small jars, then pipe the filling. You can add some leftover crumbs to the top of the filling and whipped cream.
NOTE: The number of jars you get will depend on the size of the jars you use and how much you fill the jars. Though the dessert is SOO good, it’s rich and you don’t want to overstuff the jars and have them go to waste.
I cannot wait for you to give this easy key lime pie a try. We recently had friends over and I served this. They were such a HUGE hit! My sister, who is not a fan of desserts (like me), couldn’t stop eating the dessert.
