It has all the bright lime flavor of key lime pie — even the crunchy, buttery graham cracker crust — and it’s a cinch to make. There’s no temperamental custard base to make and chill, no ice cream machine to fiddle with, and no pulling the ice cream out of the freezer every 30 minutes to beat out the crystals.

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and set a rack in the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2
In a medium bowl, combine the Graham Cracker Crumbs (1 cup) , Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) , Dark Brown Sugar (1/4 cup) , and Salt (1 pinch) . Using a spoon first and then your fingers, mix until evenly combined, making sure to break up any lumps of brown sugar.
Step 3
Press the crust into an even 1/4-inch layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden around the edges, 7 to 8 minutes.
Step 4
Let cool, then use a spoon to break into chunks. Set the crust aside while you make the filling.
Step 5
To start, zest and juice the Limes (3) .
Step 6
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the Cream Cheese (1 cup) until light and creamy, about 1 minute.
Step 7
Add the Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 1/3 cups) and beat until completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 8
Add the Heavy Cream (1/4 cup) , lime zest, lime juice and Salt (1 pinch) . Beat until evenly combined, about 30 seconds.
Step 9
Arrange half of the crust evenly over the bottom of an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan.
Step 10
Pour the ice cream mixture over top.
Step 11
Then cover with the remaining crust crumbles. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until completely firm, at least 8 hours or overnight.
Step 12
Serve and enjoy!
