Luscious Lime Pie

>> Monday, May 9, 2011

This sounded so good to me for Mother's Day!  It is a simple recipe, and my girls made it for me.  Honestly, I thought it was already posted, as it is such a family favorite, but when I came to look it up, NO!  This was a favorite of my late father-in-law, he loved Marie Callendar's key lime, but this was good enough for happiness. I think the recipe came from a Pampered Chef season's best years ago.

Luscious Lime Pie
1 prepared graham cracker crust
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. lime juice
1 Tbsp. lime zest
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping, divided

In a bowl, with an electric blender or whisk, combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth.  Stir in lime juice and zest. Fold in 2 c. whipped topping.  Pour into pie crust and chill 30 min.  Garnish with remaining whipped topping.

Note: you can add a drop or two of green food coloring to the filling, if you like.
