I found this 5 Minute Creamy Key Lime Pie Recipe on the back of a pre-made graham cracker crust package. Who would have thought that there could be such great recipes there?
This creamy pie seriously only takes 5 minutes to throw together (time yourself, I dare you.) and tastes amazing.
My husband was so thrilled to find it in the fridge after dinner and he couldn’t believe that I had spent so much time preparing dinner and still made this for dessert.
(Shh . . . don’t tell him I’m not super wife. It will be our little secret.)
How to make your own whipped cream:
This recipe tastes absolutely amazing with store bought whipped cream, however, it is ten times better when you make your own. It’s also incredibly easy to make your own. It only requires 2 simple ingredients, you may already have on hand.
Here is how you make it:
- In a chilled metal bowl (it doesn’t necessarily have to be metal, but I feel like it keeps it a little cooler) combine 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and two tablespoons of sugar.
- Using an electric mixer, (I used a hand mixer) combine the ingredients until fully incorporated, and the whipped topping forms peaks.
- Store in fridge until ready to serve, or use in recipe.
