4 Tbsp. butter

Mix all ingredients together and press mixture in a 9-inch pie plate. Bake in a 375
degree oven for 20 minutes, or until brown. Allow to cool down to room

Key Lime Layer
2 - 14 oz. cans of sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs (whole)
3/4 cup key lime juice

Mix all of the ingredients and pour the mixture in the cooled pie shell. Bake in a

refrigerator for 2 hours.

Blueberry Preserves Layer
Spread 3/4 cup Smucker´s blueberry preserves on the top of the key lime layer.
Cover fully from crust to crust. Do not let preserves touch the crust, as it may get
soggy with contact. Chill.

White Chocolate Mousse Layer
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 lb. white chocolate, broken into small pieces

Bring 1/2 cup of cream to a boil over medium heat. Add white chocolate and stir
constantly until the chocolate is melted, and the mixture is combined. Remove
from heat and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

In a large bowl, beat the rest of the heavy cream with an electric mixer on high
speed. Beat until soft peaks form. Slowly add the white chocolate mixture and
continue to beat until stiff. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Top the blueberry preserves layer with the white chocolate mousse. Garnish with
fresh blueberries and grated lime peel (for color). Chill for 2 hours. Serves 8. 375 degree oven for 15
