Key Lime Pie

March 17, 2015
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

I really don’t know what to say about this pie. 

Lime is one of my all time favorite ingredients. It is just SO fresh and light. Even just the smell of it gets me every time. Seriously. Lime just gets me. 

Then you top it with freshly whipped cream and I want to marry this dessert. 

Remember in elementary school when you would say that you loved something and someone from the peanut gallery would pipe up and say, “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?”  If I could, I would marry this dang pie! 

This is the best key lime pie recipe out there and is so darn easy to whip together. Oh, and did I mention it only has a few ingredients?

You could seriously take 10 minutes of your day and whip this baby out and serve it up for St. Patrick’s Day dessert tonight. Your husband will think you are an Irish goddess sent straight from the heavens. 

The fastest, easiest and BESET key lime pie in the world. Seriously. It is SUBLIME.
