Cool and Creamy Key Lime Dessert
I normally try any recipe exactly as written before I make modifications or submit reviews. But this time I was in a hurry and I took shortcuts based on other reviews. I used Cool Whip, but I do think the fresh whipped cream would be better/healthier and cut down on sweetness. I added a small box of sugar-free lime jello for color. I think this may have added to the sweetness overload. I put contents into an extra-large, pre-made graham cracker crust. It was very good, but I would like to try a shortbread crust and the recipe's walnut crust in future attempts. I froze the pie for serving. The frozen texture made the pie easier to cut and serve and was very nice on a hot day.
