Key Lime Pie

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for this incredibly delicious and refreshing pie, key lime pie to be exact! I can’t even describe to you how much I love this pie. I baked it 3 times in a row πŸ˜‚Β What I like most about it, is that it’s both sweet and sour. I like when two completely different flavors come together in the kitchen, cause I feel like one balances out the other.

I don’t think I need to mention that this pie is really easy, because most of my recipes on here are 😁 I say that there is nothing better than a yummy treat to go with your coffee.. but a yummy treat that requires little effort to make? Even better!

This key lime pie has a crunchy and buttery base, a zesty lime filling and a fluffy cream cheese topping. I hope you get to try out this pie and enjoy it as much as I did!Β πŸ™‚
