This is one of my favorite pies to bake. It is always a hit when I take it anywhere or have people over. Always have everyone asking for the recipe. I usually make several and give everyone some to take home. I scrape out the Oreo cookies and use those for the cookies. Or you can buy the chocolate wafer cookies and use those. When I was short on time or had a broken food processor, I used the store-bought ready-made chocolate crust. The pie still came out good, but not as good as the homemade crust.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Serve this key lime pie this summer when you're looking for a cool dessert on a hot day. The pie is extra creamy with a delicious chocolate cookie crust. It has a tart, sweet flavor with a tropical flair. Top this with whipped cream and a sprinkle of lime zest for a fancy but easy to make key lime pie. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
