What is the difference between key limes and regular limes?

The key lime is smaller and seedier than that of the regular lime that is found in the grocery store.  Plus it’s higher in acidity giving this luscious pie its distinct flavor. Each bite of this Easy Key Lime Pie has just enough tang to make your lips pucker and make you immediately dive in for more. The minute I taste the fresh, tart flavor of the key limes, I am transported to dessert heaven.

Time Saving Tips for making Easy Key Lime Pie:

In a hurry? Follow these time-saving tips to get your pie on the table faster!

  • Those tiny key limes are adorable, but who wants to spend the time squeezing 50 of them to get enough key lime juice? Pick up a bottle of key lime juice at the store.
  • We usually have graham crackers on hand and make our own graham cracker crust, but if you don’t, buy a pre-made graham cracker crust when you’re grabbing that bottled key lime juice.
