This easy key lime pie recipe made with sweetened condensed milk gets a taste upgrade with a gingersnap crumb crust. A simple pie to make, it will quickly become one of your family favorites and get rave reviews!
It’s so funny to me what people consider a classic pie.
To some, this type of key lime pie, using lime juice and sweetened condensed milk begs for a whipped cream-type topping.
I tend to like that topping the best, but here’s the thing… because the filling uses 3 egg yolks it’s PAINFUL to me to think about tossing out those egg whites. So when I was working on this recipe I knew it needed to be a meringue-topped pie, because who — these days — wants to toss out 3 perfectly good egg whites?
If you have use of 3 eggs white, maybe for an egg white omelet or even Forgotten Cookies, then by all means — whip up a batch of whip cream (or next time go straight for the store-bought shortcut and grab some Cool Whip. I won’t tell.) Either way, it’s the tangy and sweet key lime filling sitting piled atop this slightly spicy gingersnap crust that will leave you wanting more.
