Lime Pie

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by kstrating

I looked through every lime pie recipe listed here, and can't find one similar, so decided to post this. My mom won first place in the cream pie category at a cook off in their retirement community in Texas. I think the cream cheese gives it just that bit of difference.
