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.
