Quick and Easy KEY LIME PIE

For the filling:
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of lime juice
1 – 2 teaspoons lime zest (one tsp. for the filling and one for garnish)
8 ounces of whipped heavy cream or Cool Whip

The crust:
1 cooked and cooled pie crust OR 1 graham cracker pie crust.

Directions:
In a mixer bowl, add the juice with the condensed milk and whip until thick. Fold in the whipped cream or Cool Whip. Pour mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate for an hour.

For a cheesecake dessert, add one 8 ounce block of softened cream cheese to the condensed milk and juice and mix well, adding the whipping cream after the mixture is smooth. Taste for sweetness and add powdered sugar by the tablespoon to the mix if you like it sweeter while you mix it all together. This version will make a higher pie—or use a 10-inch plate.
