Killer Key Lime Pie

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.

My Ingredients:
Crust:
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

Topping:
2 cups Light Cool Whip
Reserved Lime Juice and Zest
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Toasted Coconut

My Method:

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.

Tipsy:

-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!
