White Chocolate Key Lime Pie!

refreshing...delicious...simple. i originally found this recipe on denise's blog (one of my daily visits for money saving ideas, coupons, and bargains!)...i tweaked it a wee bit to fit our tastes, and voila...with denise's permission, i pass it along to you. be sure to pop by and visit her site...i'm sure you will find something worthwhile!

White Chocolate Key Lime Pie


7 oz. Ghirardelli white chocolate chips
1 oreo or graham cracker crust
½ cup chilled whipping cream
8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp key lime juice (or plain lime juice)
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp finely grated lime peel
Lime slices for garnish, optional


Stir chopped white chocolate in a small metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water until the chocolate is smooth and melted (set aside). Remove the bowl from over the water. Then, beat whipping cream until peaks form (set aside). Beat cream cheese, sugar, lime juice, and lime peel in another bowl until smooth. Add the melted white chocolate. Fold in the whipped cream in 2 additions. Next, spread it into the pie crust and chill until the filling is slightly firm, at least 2 hours. Garnish (if you can keep from devouring it) with lime slices.
