Dina, I'm sorry. I feel like a tool LOL. I didn't read past the recipe portion and didn't see the "Whip about 1/2 cup of whipping cream, set aside" part.

I've decided to use an white wine / orange / cinnamon reduction for my sauce.

1 1/2 C white wine (I prefer Chardonnay for this)
3/4 C Grand Marnier
1/2 C water
1 C sugar
Zest and juice of one large orange
1 stick of cinnamon
4 cloves

Combine all ingredients in saute pan and bring to boil. Reduce until it reaches a thick syrup consistency. Strain & drizzle over whatever you want.

I'd love to dress the pie with candied lime peels or something similar. I've asked for some directions or guidance in another thread but have had no luck yet. I'm making the pie tomorrow morning.

Glad I found this thread. I watched Barefoot Contessa today and she made a frozen key lime pie. Ok, so I thought I would try that until I read the warning at the end recipe about consuming raw eggs (this pie is not baked), so I've decided to go with Constance's recipe since I have all those ingredients on hand and the pie is baked!

Creamy Key Lime Pie

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1/3 Cup lime juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel
2 drops green food coloring (optional)
heavy whipping cream, preferably not ultra-pasteurized

Whip about 1/2 cup of whipping cream, set aside.
Beat cream cheese and condensed milk. Add juice, peel and food coloring if desired, beating until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spread evenly into crust. Chill about 1 hour.

Whip more cream, adding a little powdered sugar. Pipe whipped cream around edges of pie, and garnish with slivers of lime peel.
My granddaughter will love this one!!
