Key Lime Pie Ice Cream






Oh how I love key lime pie!  It is, I think, my absolute favorite dessert.  It even may eclipse chocolate... I can't believe I said that... but it is true.  This being said, I was completely delighted when I found this recipe for key lime pie ice cream that is (really) just as good as the pie it is named after.
