Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 ½ cups vanilla wafers crushed
  • 1 ½ tablespoon butter melted

Filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding 3.4 ounces
  • cups milk
  • ½ cup lime juice fresh
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar granulated

Instructions

  • To make the crust, use a food processor to crush the vanilla wafers. Then, stir in the melted butter and press firmly into a pie pan. Freeze until the filling is ready.
  • To make the filling, whisk together the instant pudding and milk. Then whisk in the softened cream cheese, lime juice, zest, and sugar.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust and refrigerate or freeze overnight (see note). Garnish with lime wedges and whipped cream before serving.

Notes

You can refrigerate or freeze this pie before serving. If you refrigerate, it will thicken/harden but will remain soft, like a very soft cheesecake. If you freeze, it will harden more, like an ice cream cake.
