Chocolate Lime Pie

by elyn_ryn

There is an alternative to ice cream on a hot summer day – frozen pie! I think of frozen pie in a crust the same way I think of ice cream in a cone.

Both are cold and refreshing and both are made into many flavors.

This particular pie has fresh lime juice with lots of lime zest. It has cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk which is typical of many pies, but it also has cream in it which is typical of ice cream.

But the most interesting thing about this pie is that a chocolate crust is paired with the lime flavor. It is a surprisingly tasty combination!

Instructions
Chocolate Crust
  1. Crush Oreos including the filling with an electric chopper or place them in a zippered plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Pour the melted butter over the crumbs and mix until well blended. Place the crumbs into a 9-inch pie dish and tamp down to make a crust on the bottom and up the sides of the dish.
  2. Place the prepared crust into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes while you prepare the pie filling.
Filling
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar and beat on medium speed until smooth. Add the lime zest and mix. Then add the sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks form.
  3. Fold the whipped cream into the lime mixture and continue folding until smooth.
  4. Remove the crust from the freezer and pour in the lime mixture.
  5. Place pie in the freezer for at least 4 hours to overnight to freeze. Thaw for 10 minutes before serving to make cutting easier.
Recipe Notes

For the crust, you can substitute a store-bought chocolate crumb crust for the Oreo crust. It will not need freezing prior to use.
