Chocolate Lime Pie

Here is a recipe my Mom used to make every year for the Couples Club Christmas dinner at our church.


20-30 thin chocolate wafers

3 tbsp butter (melted)

1 lime jelly powder

1/2 c. boiling water

1/4 c. lemon juice

1/4 c. sugar

1 lemon (grated rind)

1 large tin evaporated milk

1 tsp green colouring

Butter a 10" pie plate.  Line sides with a ring of chocolate wafers, crush remaining chocolate wafers to fine crumbs and mix with melted butter.  Press crumb mixture on bottom of pie plate to form shell.  Dissolve lime jelly powder in boiling water, add sugar, lemon rind and juice.  Whip the evaporated milk, after thoroughly chilling in refrigerator and fold into jelly mixture.  Pour over chocolate wafer crust and sprinkle with grated chocolate or decorate with coloured cake trimmings.  Chill in refrigerator overnight.
