Key Lime Pie with Oreo Crust

Key Lime Pie with Oreo Crust Recipe

Pinit

I don’t care what your pre-conceived notions are about key lime pie, but forget EVERYTHING you think you know about it.  Now know this: good key lime pie doesn’t require squeezing and juicing real key limes, and it’s way way way way better with an Oreo crust instead of the traditional graham cracker crust.  I mean, what ISN’T better with an Oreo crust?

Anyway, a great key lime pie with Oreo crust only requires five ingredients:  Oreos, butter, sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and concentrated Key Lime juice (your grocery store probably carries Nellie & Joe’s, and this recipe comes from the bottle!).  If you wish to make the meringue (which I highly recommend!) it’ll take a little bit more.  You can see the ingredients and instructions under our Butterscotch Pie with Meringue link.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 sleeves of Oreo cookies
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup Key Lime Juice
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks (keep the 3 egg whites, because that’s exactly what you’ll need for the meringue)

Recipe Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 350.  Crush up the Oreos coarsely, and melt the butter.  Mix together and press into a deep pie dish.

If you are going to make the meringue, don’t worry about making pretty edges because they’ll be covered.  If leaving off the meringue, you may want to ensure the edges are pretty and even.  Next, beat together eggs, key lime juice, and sweetened condensed milk.  Pour over crust.

If you are not making meringue, go ahead and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.  If making meringue, do that first, THEN bake for 15-20 minutes or until meringue just turns a light golden brown.

This is seriously good stuff.  The tartness of the key lime is balanced out with the sweetness of the Oreos and the meringue…it’s just so yummy!  I’ve made this for years for my own birthday (June 21st) and I always regret not making two so I can just gorge myself on it.  I give this recipe 5/5 herbs!

  1. OK, to answer your question, “what isn’t better with an OREO crust?” Probably a chicken pot pie. Other than that, an OREO crust makes ANYTHING taste even better.

    We just moved to a new house, but as soon as I open the box that has my key lime juice, I am so making this pie!!! YUM!!!

  2. This looks amazing. PS I mentioned you in my one year blog post. Thanks for being so supportive!
