There is almost no dessert in the world that I like better than Key Lime Pie. I discovered this recipe a few years back and love using it as a go-to for a cool summer dessert. In these days of heat domes and sweltering conditions, it is the perfect no-bake option. The addition of the white chocolate adds just a little bit of smoothness to offset the tart lime flavor.
White Chocolate Key Lime Pie
1 C whipping cream
1 12 oz bag white chocolate morsels
1 TBSP sour cream
1/3 C key lime juice
Zest of one lime
one pre-packaged graham cracker crust
sliced limes and canned whipped cream for garnish
On the stove, heat whipping cream and morsels on medium heat, stirring continuously until melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add sour cream, key lime juice and lime zest. Stir well until smooth. Pour mixture into pie crust, cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and lime slices.
*Note from pictures: apparently whipped cream melts when it is 100 degrees outside.
