White Chocolate Key Lime Pie

I got rave reviews about my lemon pie so I figured it was time to try another pie. Key lime pie is that perfect dessert for your summer cookouts! Even if you have never been a fan of key lime pie, I actually think you will like this version. The lime flavor is very subtle and not overpowering. I made the mistake of putting this pie in the refrigerator instead of the freezer. When I went to serve this pie to my guests, it was very soupy. Obviously, I will not make this mistake again but I wanted to give you a heads up because the actual recipe never mentioned freezing it but that is the trick to making this tasty pie!

Adapted from My Recipes
Reduced-fat graham cracker crust (get the smallest of the 2 sizes)
1 cup of fat-free whipping cream
12 ounce package white chocolate chips, reserve a handful for garnish
1 tablespoon fat-free sour cream
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/3 cup lime juice
Garnish: lime slices and chopped white chocolate
Melt together whipping cream and chocolate chips in a small pan over low heat.
While you heat the chocolate and whipping cream, grate your lime zest.
Remove from heat, stir in sour cream, lime zest and juice.
Pour into pie crust.
Cover and freeze until ready to use. Garnish with lime slices and chopped chocolate if desired.
