Nothing says summer BBQ party like this key lime slab pie!
Hey yall! If there is ONE thing that my husband constantly asks me to make it’s key lime pie. He spent a lot of time in Florida when he was in the Navy and fell in love with all things key lime. I’ve made him a key lime pie a couple of times and let me tell you – that thing disappears lightening fast!
Not saying I don’t help, but it’s normally only in our fridge for one day.
I’ve made other key lime treats (key lime poke cake, key lime pie granola) but it doesn’t seem to ever be enough. All Ryon wants is key lime pie. I really don’t mind making it for him – I just like to make sure I give him a hard time about it first.
I bought this sheet cake pan from Tuesday Morning recently. I bought it mainly to make a Texas sheet cake in it but decided to christen in with a key lime slab pie.
I made the slap pie and then slid it into the fridge and didn’t say anything. When Ryon got home from work he found it sitting in there in all it’s key lime goodness. I don’t think he could have smiled any bigger if he tried. Yessss. Wifey win.

Key Lime is my all time favorite pie, can’t wait to try this out!
Hope you enjoy Holly!
Wow! Just stumbled across this while browsing the internet. A key lime pie made without condensed milk! Thanks! Will this work as a regular pie in a regular pie plate? Can’t wait to try it, thanks!
Hey Liz! You should be able to make it in a regular pie pan. I haven’t tried but I don’t see why not! Let me know how it works if you do!
Hi Liz! I made this a couple years ago and it was delicious!! My husband loves key lime pie so I am making it for his birthday. The last time I made it I do remember that it didn’t seem to have enough of the key lime filling so this time I am increasing the filling by half. Can’t wait to eat it as I am a key lime pie fan too!
