The Perfect Summer Dessert

Lately I've found myself craving cream pies -- not sure if it's because I'm pregnant (and easily overheated), or just because it's hot as blazes outside in Alabama right now!  Baking much of anything just isn't appealing, and icebox pies are so cool, creamy, and delicious.  Plus, they're super easy and can be made ahead, which is a great plus when you're expecting summer party guests.  I recently tried our White Chocolate-Key Lime Pie and Peanut Butter Pie (left), both of which have received 5-star ratings from users.  The Key Lime pie features a rich, sweet filling made from whipping cream, white chocolate morsels, lime juice, sour cream, and lime rind; I topped it off with Cool Whip for a little extra "oooomph."  Conveniently, the Peanut Butter Pie recipe makes enough filling for 2 pies, so you can freeze the extra one for later or share with a friend.  (Of course, this does make it a little too easy for me to satisfy any late-night peanut butter cravings...)
