World's Best Key Lime Pie

World's Best Key Lime Pie

Very easy, very good, light Key lime taste that still makes you pucker. Took me a while to perfect this one. No baking, no fuss - takes me 10 or 15 minutes to make.

Sorry, this is NOT how you make this recipe. It takes only one 8 oz. container of whipped topping i.e Cool Whip to make this recipe correctly. 16 ozs. of filling makes enough for two pies, and is too fluffy and not near tart enough to be considered for "world's best." 1/2 cup lime juice 1 can sweetened condensed milk 8 oz. Cool Whip Thats it.

I make this dish a bit differently. I pour the key lime juice and condensed milk mixture into the pie crust first (rather than mixing it with the topping). Then I mix a small container of heavy whipping cream with half a tub of whip cream and add 4 oz of cream cheese for a yummy topping. Then I add a lime twist on top for garnish. This is best if you prepare it the day before and let it set in the fridge over night. Super quick. Super easy. Always a crowd pleaser.

Variations to recipe: Use a hand mixer to blend lime juice and milk. Use the juice of 3 fresh limes for 1/2 cup of lime juice and use a few teaspoons of the zest in sweet. milk and lime juice blend. It’s a very good and light pie. For better taste, let sit a day or two. It blends the flavors well and balances the sweet/tart flavor. Juicing and zesting the limes takes a few extra minutes but well worth the reward. A MUST TRY!
