brit's creamy lime pies...

these are such a great compliment to any summer dinner.  they are cool, creamy, refreshing & super delicious!  i actually used pre-made mini pie crusts.  they cut quite a bit of time out of the process & made them the perfect size.  whip some of these up for a super yummy & easy treat!

{brit's creamy lime pies}

8-10 mini graham cracker crusts
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
2- 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
finely grated zest of one lime
green food coloring

1 cup cream fraiche or crema
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4-1/3 cup powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, whip together lime juice, cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk & lime zest.  Add 1-2 drops green food coloring.  Spoon into pie crusts & place in the fridge.

In a seperate bowl, whip together cream fraiche, whipping cream & powdered sugar.  Whip until light & full.  Spoon onto lime filling & put back into the fridge.  Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
Garnish with sliced lime.
