Lime Cream

Whipped Cream



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie dish. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool.

Lime Cream

  1. In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and lime juice. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. Pour into the cooled pie crust.
  2. Bake for 30 minutes or until the sides of the lime filling are set, but the centre still jiggles slightly.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pie. Let cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until the filling has completely set and chilled.

Whipped Cream

  1. In a bowl, beat the cream and sugar with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Garnish the pie with lime zest and rosettes of whipped cream.


Remove the zest from the key limes or regular limes before pressing them for juice.
