Nothing comes as close to a perfect "summertime dessert" as key lime pie. This classic indulgence is sweet, tart and oh-so refreshing as a delicious palate-cleanser to a meal. The creaminess of the filling ties the whole dessert together. The lime zest in the pie filling serves as both a flavoring ingredient and a visual one, as the bright green flecks contrast beautifully against the creamy white filling.
Prepare this key lime pie for any summertime event. Picnics, birthday parties and even outdoor holiday parties offer plenty of chances to showcase this dessert. The recipe below is no-bake and just requires some time in the refrigerator to set before serving. For even less hassle, buy a graham cracker crust.
