Key Lime Pie Filling

  • Whip the heavy cream and vanilla in a bowl with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate.
  • Whip the cream cheese with a hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix on medium-low until smooth and incorporated. Scrape the bowl.
  • Fold in the whipping cream or mix it in at the lowest mixer speed.
  • Slowly add the Key Lime Juice. Scrape the bowl and mix for 30 more seconds.
  • Add the filling to the cooled graham cracker pie shell.

  • Refrigerate covered for 3-5 days. Freeze for up to 2 months in an airtight container.
  • SIS Tip (Simple is Smart) tip for covering the pie in the refrigerator. Lightly spray some plastic wrap with non-stick cooking spray and cover the pie. The spray keeps the plastic wrap from sticking to the pie.
