Limeade Pie

I was craving something “cool” on this hot 104 degree afternoon here in Dallas, so I decided to make one of my most favorite desserts, Limeade Pie.  Key lime pie, key lime bars, key lime cheesecake, etc. are some of my all-time favorite sweets, and this pie, although it does not contain any limes, it has the flavor of key limes from the limeade concentrate.  There are only 4 ingredients, excluding the crust to make this simple and easy summer dessert.  The only hard part is waiting for for the pie to set up, which can take up to 3 hours or even overnight!!  To garnish, I grated and sliced a key lime to go on top.  This recipe comes from “The Gathering of Friends” cookbook by Michelle Huxtable and Alyse Christensen.  Enjoy!  

Spoon the Cool Whip in a large bowl.

Pour in the sweetened condensed milk.

Now add 6 oz. frozen limeade concentrate.

Add lemon juice and stir to combine.

Fold until well combined.

Pour limeade mixture into graham cracker crust.

Garnish with the zest of a key lime and a slice of key lime.

Chill for 2-3 hours or overnight, until firm.
