This recipe will always remind me of home. We had it on Thanksgiving for dessert. It is really quite refreshing after a heavy meal…and it taste even better the next day. It would be a perfect ending to an Easter celebration as well.
My mom and I had a hard time getting the recipe right…since it was my Grammie’s and she never wrote it down (in complete measurement form).
I am sure you have seen pies similar…it is an oldie but goodie and I just had to share.
I used the Nellie and Joe brand Fresh key lime juice. Yum!
In a mixing bowl, combine juice and 14 oz. sweet condensed milk. Mix for about 3 minutes on medium. (I also add about 4 drops of green food color )
Zest one whole lime and combine.
Fold in cool whip (or fresh whipped cream would be fine too) About 8 oz..
Pour into a graham cracker crust and top with a touch more or lime zest. Chill for about 3 hours.
14 oz. can sweet condensed milk
1/2 C fresh key lime juice
4 drops green food color
8 oz cool whip or fresh whipped cream
graham cracker crust

Yum! I love Key Lime pie and this one seems easy enough for even me to try. :) If you’d like another place to share it I’m hosting a link party today with a few fellow bloggers. It’s all about the easy peasy, super simple tips and projects. I’d be great to see you linked up. :)
Thanks for coming by!
If this isn’t the most perfect Easter dessert, I don’t know what is… oh, lambie cake or my grandma’s purple angel food cake. Hmmm… I think this year we’ll just have THREE desserts :) Thanks! I got a jar of key lime juice and didn’t trust the recipe on the label.
You are sweet ;)
