So when I say that this is a Killer Key Lime Pie. I. Am. Not. Joking.
I put together a few recipes to make this one, and oh my lordy, you will not be able to leave a piece in your fridge. SO make sure you have enough friends and family over so that you can eat all of it at once. I am firmly planted in the notion that it is fairly impossible to make a ‘healthy’ pie, so therefor I am happy with the fact that this one isn’t gonna stick to your butt like a fat kid on cake, more like stuck to you like a sad girl and a glass of wine. If you followed that, you probably understand that that meant it was soooo delicious but you dont have to feel so guilty about eating one piece.
I really hope you love this as much as my family and I did, if you did not, you are strange and I probably cant help you.
48 Nilla Wafers
¼ cup Water
1 tbsp Vanilla
2 tbsp Margarine or Butter, melted
¼ cup Shredded Coconut
Deliciously Velvety Pie Insides:
3 Egg Yolks
1 300ml can of Low-Fat Condensed Milk
½ cup Light Sour Cream
½ cup Light Cool Whip
1 lb Key Limes, 8 zested, all juiced. (Reserve zest and juice of one/two limes for topping.)
1 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Light Cool Whip
Reserved Lime Juice and Zest
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Toasted Coconut
Grind up the nilla wafers until they are crumb consistency. Mix this with the other crust ingredients. Pack into your pie plate and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350.
Beat your egg yolks for a minute or so until velvety. Add in your sour cream, cool whip and condensed milk. Mix in your vanilla, lime juice and lime zest.
Bake pie for 13-15 minutes at 350. It is cooked when it no longer jiggles and a toothpick comes out clean.
Put on wire rack and cool completely. 2 hours-overnight.
Mix together your topping ingredients and spread on pie.
Toast coconut on medium heat and sprinkle onto pie. (You can also sprinkle with some lime zest).
DO YOU LOVE PIE THIS MUCH? (Courtesy of my beautiful and hungry niece)
-You can make this into a lemon pie as well. But make sure you dont use regular limes, you will get a very bitter and sour pie. If you can get your hands on meyer lemons or sweet lemons you are good to go!
– Change out the nilla wafers for graham crackers, chocolate cookies, oreos, or a coconut cookie!
