Key Lime Cracker Pie (aka Lime CRACK Pie)

Recipe: Key Lime Cracker Pie

Summary: This breathtakingly easy Key Lime Cracker Pie is reminiscent of a sweet-sour tangy Key Lime Pie, and uses sweetened condensed milk and Key limes to great effect. It would be a great potluck or party pie!


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup Key lime juice (will use about 12 Key limes)
  • Zest from 12 Key limes you are juicing (about 1-2 teaspoons)
  • 5 ounces (about 1 1/4 sleeves) Ritz crackers (can use reduced fat version)
  • Optional garnish: Shredded Coconut


  1. Pour cream into a 4-cup measuring cup. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir. Add lime juice and stir until thickened, about 1 minute. The consistency of the mixture will change from milky to thick.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup filling on bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Top with a single layer of Ritz crackers. Repeat, alternating layers of filling and crackers until pie plate is full (the final layer should be filling).
  3. Sprinkle with grated lime zest.
  4. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or best is to refrigerate it overnight.
  5. Cut into wedges and serve. Sprinkle shredded coconut on the slices of those who like it.
  6. Serves 8.

A hat for this pie?

Meringue hat for Key Lime Pie, from Lisa Cooke [2]

Here is Lisa's meringue pie "hat."

Friend Lisa Cooke made the pie this past weekend, after drooling about it
for days. She says, “Yum! While it was chillin’, I decided it needed a little
height. So I baked up a meringue top for it. Just slid it from Silpat
to chilled pie and it was delicious. Here’s a picture of the meringue
hat baking.”

I say, “brilliant!”
