I have made this no less than 50 times and it is my most requested recipe! I also use 4 yolks, 1 cup of lime juice (fresh, bottled...sometimes 1/2 lemon, 1/2 lime, you CAN'T go wrong) and 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, regular or low fat. For the crust I make my own and I think this is the "secret" that makes it a favorite. I put one sleeve of graham crakers (= 1 cup when crushed), 3T sugar, 1t ground ginger and about 1/4 c of coconut, toasted or regular (both work well) in food processor. Combine until graham crackers are fine. If you want more coconut, throw a little more in, but leave as flakes, makes a nice texture for the crust. Mix with 5T of melted butter, press into pie dish or springform and bake for 8-10 mins @ 375. Okay, this may sound crazy, but I promise it works. When I have made dinners for other families, but am rushed on time, I have made two regular crusts and divided the pie filling to make two pies. It truly works! Yes, the pies will be a little less "tall", but it is still great and for those watching their calories, you will have fewer, but still get to have dessert :)
