Key Lime Cheesecake

Key Lime Pie, it’s traditionally a custard pie made with key limes and eggs and simple goodness. However I wanted a No Bake version. Easy to make and with few ingredients. So here it is, my $4.56 Pie! Simple, affordable and so refreshing for this summer heat!  It came together so well that I almost cried, but only almost.

Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature.

Zest 3 Limes, careful not to go all the way to the white of the peel, that stuff is major bitter.. whew!!

You will need one Heaping 1/2 teaspoon.

Pour into your pie shell and chill at least 3 hours, hold back that urge, you just gotta wait.

After it is chilled you can top it with Cool Whip® or eat just as it is.. I had one of those handy dandy spray cans of whipped cream, so yeah, that’s what I did!

Told ya it was easy!
