What You Need

1-1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs, divided
1/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin
1 cup ice cubes
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup lime juice
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Make It

Reserve 1 Tbsp. graham crumbs. Mix remaining crumbs with butter; press onto bottom of plastic wrap-lined 9-inch square pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Add boiling water to gelatin mix in small bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add ice; stir 2 min. or until thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in milk, then lime juice. Add gelatin; mix well. Whisk in 1 cup COOL WHIP. Pour over crust.

Refrigerate 6 hours or until firm. Cover with remaining COOL WHIP just before serving; sprinkle with reserved graham crumbs. Use plastic wrap handles to remove dessert from pan before cutting into squares.

Since she lives in Key West now, Dr. Cory Prince Reagan, the heroine of DOUBLE CROSS, has a real fondness for all things Key Lime, including this dessert. The guys on the Hard Target team, including team leader Duke Reagan, tease her about it being all frou-frou but she assures me that she has to make two batches just to get a bite because the men descend like locusts. If you’d like to read more about Cory and Duke, you can read the ebook for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, or buy it for $2.99 while it’s on sale at Amazon.
