|No Bake Lime Pie
Makes one 9-inch pie
This recipe was given to me by my friend, Elaine Walker.
- 1 8-ounce container of Cool Whip
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from 4-5 limes or 12 key limes)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 9-inch graham cracker crust
- Fold together the Cool Whip, lime juice, and sweetened condensed milk. Put into the crust
- Refrigerate for several hours until firm
I made this! It was really easy and it was a big hit. If I can make it, anyone can. :)
(Me, who didn't know how to handle the starch-froth while boiling pasta, so I would madly keep scraping the starch-froth out while the pasta was cooking
, all the while ignoring that niggling little voice in the back of my head that was saying, "I don't remember Mom doing this..." It took jcobleigh
, years before we were dating, to notice this odd behavior one afternoon and correct it: "What are you doing?!" he asked. "Just turn the heat down!")
Is it a very tart sort of key lime pie? Or more like lemon meringue made with lime, so to speak?

Seems like key lime pie, but I doubt it would be very tart, with the cup of condensed milk. I have to try this, always on the lookout for recipes for people with superficial cooking skills. :-)
It is not very tart. It's basically very light, just tart enough that it's interesting, and just sweet enough that the tart isn't too much.
Sounds perfect. *prints out recipe* Thanks!
If you try it, let us know what you think! :)
We have a similar recipe at home for a low-fat no-bake key lime pie. It does not come out too tart.
And to reveilles
, if you think you
were all thumbs in the kitchen...at least you rememebered to put water in the pasta pot. I have a friend who forgot that the first time he cooked - and we really have not let him forget it since. :)
Well, there's always those "no-boil" noodles... :)
