Sweet with a tart bite, Key Lime Pie is a perfect refreshing dessert.  It’s so easy to make and is Creed’s favorite!  We had a great dinner the other night of Corn Chowder with Bacon and needed a “lite” treat so that we didn’t feel too guilty – yeah, right!  Anyway, I made some fresh whipped cream and before you knew it, the tart pan was empty.  Boys, just remember who loves you best – mama!
