{Haute Pie} White Chocolate Key Lime

There is almost no dessert in the world that I like better than Key Lime Pie. I discovered this recipe a few years back and love using it as a go-to for a cool summer dessert. In these days of heat domes and sweltering conditions, it is the perfect no-bake option. The addition of the white chocolate adds just a little bit of smoothness to offset the tart lime flavor.

White Chocolate Key Lime Pie

1 C whipping cream
1 12 oz bag white chocolate morsels
1 TBSP sour cream
1/3 C key lime juice
Zest of one lime
one pre-packaged graham cracker crust
sliced limes and canned whipped cream for garnish

On the stove, heat whipping cream and morsels on medium heat, stirring continuously until melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add sour cream, key lime juice and lime zest. Stir well until smooth. Pour mixture into pie crust, cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and lime slices.

*Note from pictures: apparently whipped cream melts when it is 100 degrees outside. 

Stay cool!

    I am not sure hot this pie is going to taste once it sets up. I will post a follow up comment. HOWEVER… (And I do mean a HUGE however…this recipe makes VERY little pie filling! It doesn’t even make enough for in a small store-bought crust! I doubled the recipe since I have larger pie pans and made my own graham cracker crust. I still did not have enough. So, at 10:00 at night, I am going to have to come up with a new dessert to serve at a tea I am hosting tomorrow at noon! Thanks! Just thought. Would warn others to hopefully prevent them from this disaster I am stuck with! UGH! The first re pie I have dared to make from this site!

    • Hi Peggy – I’m sorry you’ve had issues with this recipe. I’ve made this many times using store-bought graham cracker crust and have never had an issue filling it. Perhaps it was a smaller sized bag of white chocolate?

    Can you actually post the amount of white chocolate instead of saying one bag as we all come from many countries and one bag or one packet is quite meaningless. When I go shopping for white chocolate you can buy it in several different size bags.

    Made the pie for the Fourth of July and it was delicious! It was so easy to make that I thought I had missed something.
