White Chocolate Key Lime Pie

ImageI made this for Easter because I wanted something new, easy to whip up, and obviously delicious. I looked all over the web for those criteria and stumbled upon this little gem on http://www.myrecipes.com It is one of those “throw it together and let it refrigerate overnight” recipes so that on special days you won’t have to fret in the kitchen trying to pull together a desert. So good!

Ingredients:

-1 cup of whipping cream

– 1-11 oz package of white chocolate morsels

– 1 tbsp sour cream

– 1 tsp grated lime rind

-1/3 cup of key lime or lime juice (I used key limes and it took me forever but was worth it)

– 1-9inch ready made graham pie crust

– sliced lime/wedges to garnish

Directions:

1.) Combine whipping cream and white chocolate morsels in a medium saucepan over low heat.

2.) Cook for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. It will seem clumpy at first but be patient because it will get creamy 🙂

3.)Remove from heat. Add sour cream, lime rind, and juice; stir well.

4.)Pour into crust. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.

4.) Garnish and serve!
