Summer Goodness

It's summer here in Florida and hot. Hot and muggy. So, I thought I'd share a sure fire way to cool off.

Key Lime Pie.

If you can keep a secret, I'll give you my favorite recipe. Right here. Right now. Shhhhh.

Key Lime Pie

1 graham cracker crust (make or buy)
1 1/2 cans condensed milk
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 c. key lime juice (don't substitute. Get the real stuff.)
1 pkg Dream Whip (make and set aside in refrigerator until needed.)

Blend together condensed milk and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.
Add key lime juice 1/4 cup at a time. Blend well after each addition. Taste before adding next 1/4 cup. Most people will stop after 1/2 or 3/4 cup juice.
Garnish with Dream Whip (Do NOT use Cool Whip.)

Let sit in refrigerator for at least 2 - 3 hours before serving.
