Key Lime Pie Sous Vide Style! Desserts


For the Key Lime filling

  • 118ml key lime juice, from fresh key limes
  • 396g can sweetened, condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks

For the crust

  • 1 teaspoon (5g) butter, to grease the tin
  • 6 tablespoons ( 85g ) butter, melted
  • 150g graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) granulated white sugar

For the topping

  • 118ml heavy whipping cream
  • 2 extra key limes for decorating


Now it is nearly weekend it must be time to treat yourself to something naughty, but nice, right?  We can’t think of a better idea than this delicious looking Key Lime Pie – you’ll need to be quick before it is all eaten!


  1. Fill and preheat your water bath to 180F/82C.
  2. Whisk all the filling ingredients together into a medium-sized bowl, until well combined.
  3. Pour the filling into the large (gallon/3.8 liter) zip-closure cooking pouch, and use the displacement method (Archimedes’ principle) to remove the air and zip the seal closed.
  4. Submerge the pouch in the water bath to cook for 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile make the graham cracker crust. Grease an 8 inch (20 cm) round spring form pan/tin with a little butter.
  6. In a large bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter with spoon.
  7. Press the crust mixture evenly into the base of the prepared pan/tin, using the back of a spoon.
  8. Put the crust into the refrigerator to harden.
  9. After thirty minutes cooking, remove the filling from the water bath and massage the contents through the pouch to ‘stir’.
  10. Open the pouch and pour the key lime filling onto the hardened graham cracker crust.
  11. Allow to cool at room temperature for about thirty minutes then refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

To decorate the Key Lime pie:

  1. Beat the heavy whipping cream to soft peaks.
  2. Put the whipped cream into a piping bag with a medium tip/nozzle.
  3. Pipe small circles of cream around the edge of the pie and one large circle in the center.
  4. Arrange thin slices of key lime on top of the pie.
