KEY LIME PIE BARS RECIPE

I love key lime pie – that sweet-tart filling gets me every time! These key lime pie bars are a more portable version of the classic dessert that are just as delicious as the original. The crust for these bars is a simple mixture of graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. The crust is baked to golden brown perfection and then topped with a layer of ultra creamy key lime pie filling.

Key limes are very small limes that are often sold in bags at the grocery store. You can also buy bottled key lime juice if you can’t find fresh key limes. And if all else fails, use regular old limes from the grocery store and you’ll still end up with an amazing end result.

Ingredients:

Crust
  • 2 cups finely crushed *crunchy* gingersnap cookies (or graham crackers)
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter, melted

Filling
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk (not fat free)
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest (about 1 lime)

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a 9x9 baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on the sides, and lightly spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Make the crust: Pulverize the crunchy gingersnap cookies into a fine crumb with a food processor. Pour into a medium sized bowl and mix with the melted butter. Press firmly and evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes as you make the filling.
  3. Make the filling: In a large bowl using a handheld mixer, beat the cream cheese on high speed until smooth. Beat in the egg yolks, scraping down the sides as needed. Beat in the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and lime zest until combined. Pour into the warm crust.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges of the bars begin to brown. Allow the bars to cool at room temperature in the pan on a wire rack. Once cooled, place the the refrigerator to chill completely, at least 2 hours.
  5. Once chilled, lift the bars out of the pan using the aluminum foil overhang. Cut into squares. Makes 16 squares. Store squares in the refrigerator (covered) for up to 1 week, if they last that long!
