No Bake Key Lime Pie
As a little girl, one of my best memories was watching my mom’s passion for cooking translate into so many amazing recipes. She used to collect many creative food recipes from her other teacher friends at school.
The Cool Story Behind Key Lime Pie
Light, tangy, and clearly summery, few things are more compatible with Florida than the famous Key lime pie. But how did the Sunshine State’s most famous dessert come about? No one really knows for sure, but it’s still a madly argued topic.
The most well-known Key lime pie legend is Aunt Sally, a chef who, in the late 19th century, worked for self-made billionaire William Curry. There is debate over whether Aunt Sally borrowed the idea from Key West’s sponge fishermen, whose rations included canned milk and citrus fruit, or whether she merely substituted limes for the lemons in her lemon icebox pie recipe.
After all, Aunt Sally is credited with creating the famous dessert in the kitchen of the historic Curry Mansion Inn in Key West.
What About Limes?
You can’t make a key lime pie without limes. How did these delicious green fruits get to America in the first place? The answer goes back much further than you think.
Wild limes are not native to the southern United States but are believed to have been brought to Europe from Indonesia by the Crusaders in the 12th and 13th centuries. Hundreds of years later, in 1493, Christopher Columbus brought citrus seeds to the West Indies, Mexico, and Florida.

Frequently Asked Questions
Well if you are not a fan of condensed milk, then use softened cream cheese instead. There will be a slight change, but don’t worry it will still be very enjoyable!
If you find yourself with extra pie on your hand, then store the leftovers for later. Place the pieces in an airtight container in the fridge. It should hold for 3 to 4 days for later enjoyment!
