MAKE IT LIKE SO
1. Put all the crust ingredients into a food processor, and process until the ingredients can just stick together. You shouldn’t have a gooey mess. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Press the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9inch glass pie dish.
2. Place all the filling ingredients in your high-speed blender or food processor and blend until the filling is completely smooth and creamy.
3. Pour the filling evenly over the pie crust, smooth with a spatula. Place the pie in the freezer covered to set for at least 3 hours, or overnight if possible.
4. Let the pie sit at room temperature for 10 minutes and garnish with key limes before serving.
