Why THIS Key Lime Pie Recipe is so Easy!

We used homemade whipped cream in this recipe because we absolutely refuse to use the whipped, cream-like mixture people call whipped topping. (Gagging noises commence.)

Making homemade whipped cream is a cinch — don’t be intimidated.

You’ll find we use homemade whipped cream in these recipes:

Homemade whipped cream is ready in just a few minutes, so be careful that you watch it closely!

Our biggest mistake we’ve made (my daughers and I) is letting our whipping cream whip too long. Then we end up with super-yummy butter. It’s nice to spread on dinner rolls, (and here’s an awesome recipe for that!) but definitely not usable for key lime pie — or any other creamy, dessert!

Drool! This key lime pie recipe is the easiest one you'll ever make! Plus you can serve it in super-cute tarts made from pre-made shells. Such a creamy, luxurious treat that's ready in minutes!

If you want to jazz thees tarts up, make sure you place the whipped cream into a piping bag or a plastic sandwich bag and slowly pipe the whipped cream on top — like a cupcake!

Then, you can sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs or even some lemon zest for an extra dash of color.

We kept it simple this time and just let the whipped cream be our only garnish.

Either way will wow your tastebuds! <3

Oh, and even though technically you do have to pre-heat the oven and lightly bake your tart cups, this is still considered a no-bake key lime pie recipe.

Why?

Because the key lime pie mixture isn’t baked and yes, there’s barely any baking time required!
