Recipe from Kristi Lopes
Pictures by Kelly
1 graham cracker crust*
1 can (13.4 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (7 oz) media crema (table cream)
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2-3/4 cup fresh lime juice
- In a large bowl, whip together the condensed milk and cream with hand beaters on medium speed. Add the softened cream cheese (if it is not very soft, it will not whip smooth, and you'll find teensy bits of cream cheese in your pie later) and beat until smooth.
- Add the lime juice gradually, whipping and tasting until the desired tartness has been reached.
- Pour into graham crust. Chill at least 2 hours and serve.
*For a gluten free pie, make your own crust out from this recipe here. We haven't tried it, but it looks respectable.
