Marshmallow-Almond Key Lime Pie

I found this really good pie here, and had to share it

Marshmallow-Almond Key Lime Pie


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


  • Place the flour, brown sugar and 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor. Cover and process until blended. Add melted butter and honey; cover and process until crumbly. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a large bowl, beat the milk, 5 ounces cream cheese, lime juice, peel and salt until blended. Add egg yolk; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into crust. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Add cream and remaining cream cheese; beat until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  • Beat marshmallow mixture until light and fluffy. Spread over pie; sprinkle with remaining almonds. Yield: 8 servings.
