If you love this pie, you will also love this classic Atlantic Beach Pie! It’s lemon and lime with a saltine cracker crust. It’s great for any gathering and always a hit. Scroll down for more no bake pies!

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This pie’s ingredients are no-bake, but adding the delicious homemade crust takes it to the next level. It’s really good and super refreshing. You can easily make this pie a day in advance, too, which is always handy. If you like it extra lime, then add a little more juice!

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Graham Crackers
  • Quick Cooking Oats
  • Walnuts or pecans
  • Brown Sugar
  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese
  • Condensed Milk
  • Key lime juice or regular lime juice
  • Lime zest
  • Cool Whip

SWAPS

If you use three packages of cream cheese, you could make this in a deep-dish crust. You can also use a bought graham cracker crust instead of making your own. If you use a regular 9-inch crust like we did, your filling will be tall like the filling in our pie because we used a regular crust, and the recipe makes a lot of filling.  

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This pie is super easy to make, and while you can use a store-bought graham cracker crust to save time, I fully believe the homemade crust is what makes this one even better!

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Combine all crust ingredients. Press into 9 inch regular pie shell. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Let cool before adding pie filling.

Step 2
Beat softened cream cheese until smooth with a mixer. Add condensed milk, lime juice and lime zest and continue mixing until combined. Fold in thawed cool whip. Pour into cooled crust and chill 4 to 5 hours or overnight until set. Can garnish with lime slices and lime zest.

⭐TIP

I haven’t tried it, but I do think this would work with just 2 packages of cream cheese. You may have to adjust the lime juice if you do. You can always add more or take some away depending on your desired lime flavor.
