An easy recipe for refreshing Key Lime Pie — a summertime favorite!
Nothing says summer more than refreshing key lime pie. This is one of my favorite summer time desserts that I make year after year and this past weekend was the first time I made this summer. It is one of my husbands favorites and he was thrilled when he saw a freshly baked key lime pie sitting on the table ready to be sliced. Its refreshing and light. Throughout the years that I have made this dessert I never change a thing. The best part is it only requires a few ingredients so it can be made up for a last minute picnic and doesn’t take a lot of time to make.
For this occasion my future brother in law was in town this past weekend and he loves my key lime pie so I made it for him. So grab your fork and a dollop of whip cream and dig in to this delicious summer dessert.
