What You Need

2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese ( softened)

1/2 Cup  sugar

1 tsp Lime zest ( only the green)

2 Tbsp.  Lime juice

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2   Eggs

1 Pre-made graham cracker pie crust  ( from your grocery store)

1 Cup thawed frozen whipped topping

Electric Mixer

Before You Start: Preheat oven to 350°

Lets Make It!  In a large bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, lime zest, lime juice and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs and mix until blended. Pour into crust. Bake for about 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate  overnight. Frost with coconut frosting, recipe below.


1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese( softened)

1/2 Cup unsalted butter(softened)

4 Cups powdered sugar

2 Tbsp heavy cream

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Coconut flavoring

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1/2 Cup sweetened shredded coconut

In a bowl beat the cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time and alternating with cream. Add salt, coconut flavoring, and vanilla extract and blend well. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and spreadable. Add additional confectioners’ sugar if necessary to thicken the frosting, or more cream to thin. Stir in the coconut. Spread evenly over cooled pie.


*Katies Tid Bits     If desired, spoon toasted coconut evenly over frosted pie or top with whipped topping instead of frosting.
