Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Frosty Key Lime Pie

                                                      I got this image from here


Crunchy Pretzel Crust or1 package(6oz.) ready to use graham cracker pie crust
2 packages (8 oz. each) creamcheese at room temperature
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1/2 cup Key Lime juice or regular lime juice
1 can(14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
Few drops  of green food color, if desired.
1 cup  frozen (thawed ) whipped topping

Crunchy Pretzel Crust
3 cups small pretzel twists(about40)
1/2 cup(1 stick) margarine or butter,melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar


  1. Make Crunchy Preztzel Crust (below.) While crust is chilling, continue with the recipe.
  2. Beat the cream cheese,lime peel, lime juice, milk and food color in a large bowl with the electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth.
  3. Pour the lime mixture into the crust.  Cover and freeze about 6 hoursor until the filling is firm.
  4. Let the pie stand at room temperature about 5 minutes before cuttting into slices . Serve with frozen whipped topping freeze the remaining pie.
Tip: for a softer texture they suggest putting the pie in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours for a softer texture
but mine was too soft(I used low fat cream cheese) I used a concentrated form of the lime juice and I still
couldn't taste the lime. I mean mine doesn't have to be all twangy it's just that there has to be distinction
 between this and cheesecake!

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
