Key Lime Pie- No Bake Version

One of my favorite flavors for the warmer months of the year is citrus.  This Key Lime Pie has such a lovely balance of sweet and tangy flavors so it is a wonderful way to end any summertime meal.  I also love the fact that this is a total no bake pie... that means there is no need to get all hot and bothered in the kitchen to get this one on the table.  I hope you will love this from the first bite like I did.

1 pre-made graham cracker crust (or you can make your own)
1 14oz can of condense milk
1 8oz brick of cream cheese (at room temperature)
1/2 cup of fresh key lime juice (or fresh lime juice)
1 Tbs of lime zest
1 1/2  tubs of cool whip topping

Note:  to make your own pie crust follow this link:  homemade pie crust directions
 In a bowl use a mixer to blend together the brick of room temperature cream cheese, can of condense milk, lime juice and Tbs of lime zest.

Next gently fold in 1/2 tub of cool whip topping.

Pour filling into your pie crust and allow to chill at least 8 hours or over-night for best results.

Before serving, top pie with an entire tub of cool whip and garnish with more lime zest and lime slices.  Serves 6-8 people.  Enjoy.
