Marshmallow-Almond Key Lime Pie Recipe

It's great to see that many grocers now carry key limes, which give this pie its distinctive sweet-tart flavor.—Judy Castranova, New Bern, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened, divided
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated Key lime peel
  • 1/2 cup Key lime juice
  • Dash salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1-3/4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place flour, brown sugar and 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor; process until almonds are finely chopped. Add melted butter and honey; process until crumbly. Press onto bottom and up sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat 5 ounces cream cheese, milk, lime peel, lime juice and salt until blended. Add egg yolk; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into crust. Bake 15-20 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. Meanwhile, place marshmallows and butter in a small heavy saucepan; cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Transfer to a large bowl; beat in remaining cream cheese until blended. Beat in cream. Refrigerate, covered, until cold.
  • 4. Beat chilled marshmallow mixture until light and fluffy. Spread over pie; sprinkle with remaining almonds. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
