Key Lime Mousse Pie
By melissa harris mharrisrn
This recipe I found on the Paula Dean website. Must give credit where credit is due!!
Too good not to share. Best Key Lime pie ever!! Delicious and serves a crowd. My favorite to bring to pot lucks, especially in the summer. Very refreshing!!
Alot of ingredients, but oh so worth it!!
Pour pie mixture into crust and freeze 4 hrs. Serve cold. May set out about 30 minutes ahead to slice easier.

i want to ask how much vanilla wafer crumbs

I'll be honest, I didn't measure when I used them. Depending on the size of your pan, I would start with about 4-5 cups of crumbs and stick of melted butter than go from there. You may have to add a little more butter if it's still too dry. Hope that helps!

Hi; I Hope you don't find me rude but the pie is called key lime mousse pie..and the required amount for wafers is 2 cups ..And it's a beautiful pie..Thank you

Laura; I apologize if my typo in the title is toublesome to you..I'll be sure to fix that right away.
As far as the vanilla wafers... this recipe is meant to fill at 10" x 4" sping form pan. The crumbs go on the bottom and half way up the sides. 2 cups is not near enough. I know because I've made this several times. But thanks for the input. Yes, it is a beautiful pie. And it tastes pretty good too. ;-)
