Frozen Key Lime Pie

This is the best pie to make during the summer.  I made it this weekend for Joey's dad that came down from PA and even though it's terrible unhealthy it was such a great, cold treat after working all day in the hot sun.

After you read the ingredients you'll know why I say it's "un"healthy... you'll also want to make a quick run to the grocery store!  



CRUST //

Ready to use graham cracker crust
Brush with egg and place in oven for about 5 mins at 375 degrees

PIE FILLING //

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup key lime juice
1 tablespoon lime jest
1 pint half-&-half
1 (12-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 

DIRECTIONS FOR PIE FILLING // 

Beat heavy whipping cream until slightly thickened.
Gradually add in the sugar and condensed milk and mix with electric mixer at medium speed.
Add lime juice, zest, and half-&-half.  
Taste test 
~you can always add more lime juice if you like
Pour pie filling over crust.
Cover and freeze for 4 to 6 hours until firm.  

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and fitting in sweet & cold treats whenever possible!  
We've had to make special trips to get snow cones or watermelon milkshakes several times this summer already.  Enjoy!
