Strawberry Lime Icebox Pie

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Hope every Mother had a great day today! My mom loves a good key lime pie but I wanted to jazz it up. So I added fresh strawberries and I made a brown sugar vanilla wafer crust instead of the graham cracker one. Wow the flavors are amazing and this is Perfect for the Summer!!!! so enough chit chat, enjoy the recipe! I'll be adding the new recipes to the recipe page for easier access this week. Hope your week starts off right =]
