Luscious Lime Pie
45 vanilla wafers, crushed (1 1/2 c.)
1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. lime juice
1 Tbsp. lime zest
1 container (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping thawed (I bought the 16 oz. container so I had plenty left over for decorating)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray pie pan with cooking spray. Mix together crushed vanilla wafers and butter until crumbs are moistened. Press crumb mixture firmly into prepared pan. Bake ten minutes; cool slightly. Place in refrigerator to cool completely.
For filling, combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in large bowl and beat until smooth. Stir in lime zest and juice, mixing well. Fold in 2 cups whipped topping. Pour mixture into prepared crust. Chill 30 minutes.
