Key Lime Pie Lasagna

May 3, 2018Teresa

Key Lime Pie Lasagna is absolutely the B-E-S-T!!! This dessert is fluffy and creamy, with just a little tartness from the Key Lime Pie filling. This four-layer dessert has a nutty crust layer. It’s topped with a cheesecake layer. That’s followed by a Key Lime Pie filling layer. Finally, it’s topped off with whipped topping, more nuts and a little lime zest. Terrific, spectacular, extraordinary are only a few adjectives that can describe this fantastic dessert.

Back last fall, I saw that our grocery stores were stocking  Lucky Leaf Key Lime Pie filling. As soon as I saw it, I snatched several cans off the shelf knowing that I was going to try some new recipe with them. I wavered back and forth on what to make, but finally came up with this layered dessert. Based on my Mississippi Mud Pie dessert, this Key Lime Pie Lasagna rocks!

I served it to our Friday night church care group. We meet weekly and there’s always fabulous food to be had! I got so many ooohs and ahhhs over this dessert. Everyone, without exception, loved it. Yes, I hit the Grand Slam with this recipe. It had just the right amount of sweetness balanced with a little tartness. It had just the right amount of crunchiness from the crust to balance all the creamy layers. Of course, it didn’t hurt to have that cheesecake layer in the middle, either.

If you want a dessert that will wow your family and friends for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, this is the dessert that will do it. It’s really not a difficult dessert to make either. Layer one is baked, but has only 3 ingredients. Layer 2 has only 3 ingredients. Layer 3 has one ingredient. Layer 4 has 3 ingredients, but you can use only one if you want to scrap the nuts and lime zest on top. So it’s really pretty simple.

Ok, now something closer to home. Have you all seen the new Magnolia Table cookbook? Well I got my copy last week and I’ve been pouring through it. It’s got some great recipes I can’t wait to try out. (I.e., Jojo’s Biscuits, Chip’s pancakes and a Lemon Pie that looked spectacular). I rarely buy cookbooks anymore because I have too many of them already. It’s also easier just to look stuff up on Pinterest and the Internet these days. But I’m glad I ordered this one. It tells their story so beautifully.

John and I took our youngest son and his wife to the Silos shopping last Saturday. Wow, was it ever packed. It’s like going to Disney World! It’s a beautiful place. We were hoping to get in to Magnolia Table for lunch. We got there at 12:30. We expected to have to wait an hour or so.  Unfortunately, they had stopped adding people to their waiting list at 11:00 a.m. for 3:00 p.m. closing! Note to self: NEVER visit Magnolia properties on a weekend. Go on a week day! 🙂 Even still we had fun walking around the shops and drooling over all the food from their catering trucks outside. I had one each of Joanna’s cookies: a sugar cookie and a chocolate chip cookie with peanuts and pecans. Both were awesome.

Where was I? Oh, yeah, back to dessert. You can refrigerate the dessert or freeze it until about an hour before you’re ready to serve it. Seriously, if you want a “knock-your-socks-off” dessert, give Key Lime Pie Lasagna a try. I guarantee your family and friends will be raving over it too.

    Good idea, but the pie filling is terrible. I frequently use other pie filling flavors, but this was sans flavor. The first layer on the crust didnt have much “cheesecake” flavor either. I made my own shortbread crust. Also, too much cool whip. Great concept, but I wont make this again, at least not with Lucky Leaf Key Lime pie filling.

      Hi, Kathy, We’ve always enjoyed Lucky Leaf’s pie fillings and this one was no exception. Everyone who tried this loved it. Did you use their brand?

      1. Kathy

        April 29, 2019 at 8:03 pm

        Yes. I said that in my comment. I also mentioned that I’ve used other lucky leaf fillings, but this one was really lacking. As I said, the concept is very clever, but maybe with a true key lime filling or maybe lime curd, it would have flavor. Your saying that everyone who tried it loved it. That doesn’t mean that I, or my family should love it too. They wouldn’t eat it because it tasted like chemicals sandwiched in a sea of cool whip. I have been cooking probably longer than you have been alive, so I guess I am entitled to my honest opinion. Good luck with your future creations.

          Hi, Kathy. I’m sorry if you felt I implied that you should like it just because everyone else did. I’m sure that a home-made key lime filling would be terrific, just a little more work. I’m also sad that your batch of key lime pie filling tasted so bad. Of course, you are entitled to your opinion. P.S. Unless you’re 80 years old or above, you probably have not been cooking longer than I’ve been alive. I’m no young whipper snapper. 🙂 wink, wink. Enjoy your week.
