Rita you are so right about this pie! It is rich but at the same time refreshing. I used a prepared graham cracker crust, Nellie and Joe's key lime juice, and dark rum in the whipped cream. Key Lime Pie is DH's favorite and he loved the variation. I can't wait to get my hands on some fresh key limes. This would be a very easy and impressive dessert to entertain with. We all loved it, 5 stars all the way girl. Thanks for sharing. :) JT'sMom
This really WOWed my dinner guests last night! And it is SO easy to make - really clear instructions. I had them asking where did you get the pie and they were SO impressed that I'd made it and, of course, wanted the recipe. Thanks Rita! The filling and cream - I opted for the dark rum! - just so wickedly delicious, and that it is not over-the-top in calories so that you just don't want to know about it: what a bonus!
