Estimated Prep Time: 120

Ingredient List and Amount used: 1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of cream cheese
1 cup of heavy cream
1 large box of SF lime jello mix
1/2 cup of Lime juice (key lime) if you can find it
1 cup of pecan meal
1 egg white
1/4 stick of butter melted
Sweetener of your choosing

Recipe instructions: Crust:

Add the melted butter and the egg white to the pecan meal and blend until wet and dough like. You can add some sweetener into this if you like things really sweet. Press this out into a regular size pie pan and bake at 350 until it sets up, approx 10-15 minutes, remove from the oven set aside to cool.

Filling:

In a microwave safe bowl container bring to boil the lime juice then add in the lime jello mix, stir and set aside to cool. Warm the cream cheese slightly and add in the sour cream and heavy cream in a large mixing bowl and blend on high until light and fluffy. Once the jello mix has cooled off (important) slowly drizzle the mix into the bowl while blending until all is incorporated into the sour cream cream cheese heavy cream mixture. Pour this into the pecan crust and spread it evenly, then refrigerate until it sets up.

General Comments : You can taste the filling after you add in the jello mix for sweetness and correct at that point. I found that this recipe doesn't require any more sweetener other than whats in the jello mix.
