Recipe: Key Lime Pie

Ringing in the New Year a little late with this sweet recipe. Technically this is just regular lime pie as there aren’t any key limes to be found in Estonia but it still counts I think. This recipe comes together with very little effort and is a nice not too sweet dessert for any occasion.
