Key Lime and Blueberry Pie is my take on a key lime pie with a twist!  Key Lime Pie is loaded with fresh blueberries and filled with an deliciously creamy filling made with fresh limes, egg yolks, egg whites and sweetened condensed milk. Then it’s topped with more fresh blueberries.

With its luscious and smooth filling, along with intense tangy flavors and baked over an oatmeal cookie crust, makes this key lime and blueberry pie an exquisite dessert!

Key Lime and Blueberry Pie is so yummy you can serve it all summer long, and make it all year long.

The flavors of citrus and blueberries go very well together, and it makes this dessert extra exceptional.  Trust me, everyone will fall in LOVE after their first bite.

You’ll probably want to make this pie again!

 

 

This key lime and blueberry pie is such a delicious dessert!  I bet you will make this one over and over again.  It freezes well too.

The best part?  Is having the burst of fresh blueberries throughout the pie.  Plus, it’s set over an oatmeal cookie crust, which turns this dessert… into a FANTASTIC one!

Below  you will find our easy step-by-step directions on how to make this Key Lime and Blueberry pie.   For any reason you can’t find key limes, then we recommend to use fresh limes, they’re easy to find at your local supermarket.
