Foodie Friday- Key Lime Pie Dip

Happy Friday! Its Christmas Eve-Eve, are you ready? Are you sick of the music, cold weather and screaming kids? I know I am but I never get sick of holiday treats. We would love to see what cookies you are making for Santa or fudge so please link up your latest food creations.

When my husband and I got together one of the first things we baked together was key lime pie. We have tried it many different ways since and have decided on a simple is better kinda pie. Instead of graham cracker crust we use a pretzel crust ( made the same way just with smashed pretzels instead)

Wednesday night I decided to try it a different way again. This is a much lazier version and I believe my husband called it a "diabetic dream".

I zested all three limes into a bowl, squeezed the juice in too. Blended that with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.

We usually make a merengue for the top of the pie but since I was making it a dip this time I just put whipped cream on top. Chilled it in the fridge for about a half an hour.

Then we used pretzels for dipping, graham crackers would have been good too.

Well you won't hear from us until after Christmas, we have a gift exchange tomorrow and Monday we will be posting pictures of our handmade gifts we made this year so be sure to check that out.

Happy Holidays!

Now you can share with us and our followers what you have been cookin' and it would be great if you put our button on your page too!
