Difficult to Resist.....

I spend way too much time reading so many blogs, wish I could find someone to pay me to do it!

Most of you know what I mean when you see a recipe that just makes you sit up straight and pay attention. That happens quite often when I read Mary’s blog One Perfect Bite.

I’ve been a follower of Mary for quite a long time, not only for her recipes but for her stories and interesting facts. It just dawned on me…I’m not ‘wasting’ time visiting all these’s educational! Feeling so much better now.

Anyway, when I read Mary’s post about her Frozen Key Lime and White Chocolate Pie, I knew I would have to make it. It is EVERYTHING you would hope it to be… bursting with that key lime flavor and the creamy white chocolate topping. This is one dessert I will be making over and over anytime of the year.

Frozen Key Lime and White Chocolate Pie...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite


1 graham cracker pie crust


1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

6 ounces whipped topping

Zest of 2 limes

1/2 cup bottled key lime juice

Lime slices for garnish


4 ounces white chocolate

1-1/4 cup chilled whipping cream, divided use


1) To make filling: Mix condensed milk with whipped topping and beat until well-blended. Add lime zest and juice and blend well. Pour into crust and freeze.

2) To make topping: Combine white chocolate and 1/4 cup cream in a small bowl. Set over simmering water and stir until chocolate melts and is smooth. Remove bowl and allow chocolate to cool to body temperature. Beat reserved 1 cup cream until soft peaks form. Fold in chocolate mixture. Spread over top of lime filling. Return pie to freezer. Freeze for 8 hours.

3) To serve: About 1 hour before serving, remove pie from freezer and cut into serving slices. Place pie in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Garnish with lime slices if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

Mary’s pie looked much more refined than mine, but the taste I know had to be spot on. Visit Mary’s post to have a ‘loving’ look at hers.

Thanks Mary – you’ve made quite a few of my friends very happy!

Thanks For Stopping By…..

OK, Barb, I'm paying attention! That pie looks fantastic! I bookmarked it when I saw it on Mary's blog, too! Now I have to go to sleep with a rumbly tummy thinking about it. Save me a slice, will ya?

I bookmarked this when Mary posted it because it really grabbed my attention too. I just bought a big bag of lemons at Costco. How's that for timing.

This looks and sounds wonderful. I think it would be a wonderful dessert after a spicy meal...might have to splurge my pts on this one soon.
