Lemon, Lime, Orange…pretty much any citrus flavor just screams Summertime to me! Especially if it’s cool n’ creamy! With all the hot weather we have been having, I am trying not to heat up our kitchen. Our family loves the no bake Strawberry Pie so I knew this Lime Pie would be a hit too!
Perfect for potlucks – easy enough for weeknight dinner at home – and elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, this Lime Pie starts with Jell-O and has extra flavor with freshly squeezed lime juice and the zest of the lime.
Many moon ago, I collected the little cookbooks, you know the kind, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, even Pampered Chef makes them. I have one that was published by Kraft in 1993, Simple Desserts Made Special with Cool Whip (Favorite All Time Recipes), which is where I found this recipe for Summer Lime Pie!
Using a store bought graham cracker crust makes this recipe really easy, you can of course make your own, they are pretty easy. Serve with a dollop of Cool Whip, a sprinkle of lime zest and fresh berries for an elegant yet easy dessert.
You can also find mini graham cracker crust in the baking aisle and serve this Summer Lime Pie in individual servings.
What’s your favorite Summertime flavor?
