I used fresh key limes because I have a tree in my yard, and I wanted to find the perfect recipe! This was it! Several extended family members commented that this was the best key lime pie they have ever tasted! I followed the recipe exactly as directed. Awesome!
The BEST key lime pie recipe! I've never made it before - made it for my dad's birthday. The entire family loved it. Held it's form very well. Whipped cream was also the perfect amount of sweetness and cream! Love love love. Will never use another recipe again for key lime!
my whole family loved this! i cheated because i used already-made graham crusts that were given to me by someone who bought them by accident, so i was trying to think of something to use with them. this fit the bill perfectly! since i love pecans, i chopped some and sprinkled them on the crust before browning in the oven. i was skeptical about the whipping cream on top, but it was delicious and i look forward to making this again! if i ever make the crust from scratch, i will add pecans throughout the mixture. a local restaurant here does that with their key lime pie and it's great. it gives the crust more substance.
This was my first attempt at key lime pie, and it was a hit with my husband. I rate this recipe 5 stars! On the topping, I used more powdered sugar than the 1/4 cup, enough to get the consistency I wanted. Also, I used fresh key lime juice, which I think made it perfect.
I used 1/2 cup key lime juice and liked the sweet-tart balance better.
