One lime recipe I tried recently was this Creamy Lime Squares recipe. It was easy to put together with step-by-step images. Then you have to wait for it to set up. I really loved the way it tasted the powdered sugar sprinkled on top of the key lime counterbalances the tartness of the limes. Making this one delicious lime dessert!
