The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Shortcut Key lime pie

You can use already prepared pudding for this recipe (such as Kozy Shack Key Lime Pudding & Pie Filling) but I always use the instant, powdered pudding mix. It sets up fast and I’m just picky enough to want to have made it myself šŸ™‚

What you’ll need:

1 pie shell
1 large or 2 small box(es) Key lime pudding mix and milk to prepare it
1/2 c whipped topping
lime slices, if desired

Prepare pudding as directed on package for PIE; set aside. Prepare shell and allow to cool (you can use a graham cracker or cookie crumb pie shell if desired. Skip this step if you do.) Whisk together prepared pudding and whipped topping until mixed well. Pour mixture into pie shell and spread evenly. Place in freezer for 3 hours. Let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving. Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a lime slice if desired.

Cost:
pie shell – $2.00
pudding – $0.49/ box
milk – $3.99/gallon
whipped topping – $0.99
limes – $1.99/4
Total – $4.00
