“A super easy stand-in for traditional key lime pie. Slightly altered from the version posted on Serious Eats (http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/07/10-minute-lime-cracker-pie-recipe.html). Squeezing the limes can be a chore, but you can always skip it by buying fresh lime juice.”

Directions

  1. Combine condensed milk and heavy cream in a large bowl.
  2. Add lime juice and whisk until thickened, about 1 minute.
  3. Spread 1 cup filling on bottom of deep-dish pie plate.
  4. Top with single layer of Ritz crackers.
  5. Repeat, alternating layers of filling and crackers until pie plate is full. Finish with a layer of filling. For that layer, mix half of the lime zest into the "batter".
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining grated lime zest.
  7. Refrigerate overnight. Keep refrigerated until serving.
  8. Note: Original recipe called for 1/2 cup juice but I found it better with more. I also only needed 6 limes to provide the juice I needed. Club crackers can stand-in for Ritz.
