This fabulous cool and creamy treat has 4 ingredients. It is EASY and DELICIOUS and will disappear every time it is set on the table. Enjoy this fresh taste of summer all year long!
My cooking philosophy is to keep it healthy and easy. Recipes at Hammers N Hugs will include all-natural ingredients that can often be frozen and have been tested and approved by friends and family!
This recipe is without a doubt one of my favorites, and if it looks familiar that is because it is literally my Easy Key Lime Pie recipe but with lemon juice. When prepping them both for an event the garnishes on the top help to differentiate which is which. I will slice a lemon and a lime and arrange them on top accordingly. Another option is to take a peeler to the lime and lemon peel and drop peel “curls” onto each pie. Delicious AND pretty!
As mentioned before, there are only 4 ingredients if you buy a pre-made crust, but I highly recommend my homemade graham cracker crust and the secret weapon to make it in minutes!
Ah here it is. My secret weapon. If you do not have one of these “choppers” by GoodCook you absolutely must click on this link. For less than $10, this tiny tool packs a punch. From breaking up hamburger meat to crushing crackers the GoodCook Chopper has become a must have tool in my kitchen!
I will often put the creamy mixture in the freezer until the crust is done baking. When using all-natural whipped topping it does not maintain form as well so putting it in the freezer helps keep it less runny. I will then put the entire pie in the freezer until ready to serve as it softens quickly once out.
