My husband loves this recipe, and it was his favorite, when I first wrote my cookbook, SHARING OUR FAVORITE RECIPES, a few years ago. I have since created a double layer Key Lime Pie/Cheesecake Recipe recipe which he likes even more. I will share that recipe with you at another time. But this one is simple and easy, and not too many steps, and it looks like you worked for hours making it.That's why I used it as my cover photo. I did not include the extra chilling time in the prep time to make.It is a very impressive looking dessert. I made one for my neighbor when she first moved in years ago,
Beat Cream Cheese and condensed milk in a mixing bowl until smooth.
Add limeade and food coloring if desired.
Fold in half of whipped topping.
Pour mixture into crust.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Top with remaining whipped topping.
Garnish with kiwi fruit, maraschino cherries, and mandarin orange segments.
Return to refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours or over night
