Alligator Lime Pie

I can credit this pie to my first venture into the world of catering.  For a project in my public speaking class in college, I had to give a demonstration in front of the class.  I made this pie, shared it with my classmates and took home an A+.  Try frozen lemonade for a different twist.

1 pre-baked graham cracker pie crust

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (10-ounce) carton frozen whipped topping

1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade, thawed

Fresh lime slices

Combine sweetened condensed milk and limeade.  Fold in whipped topping.  Spoon into pie crust.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Serves 6 to 8.
