1 (9 inch)
prepared graham cracker crust
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
grated lime zest
fresh lime juice
frozen whipped topping, thawed
I have made this pie a couple of times. Everybody loves it!! You can use key lime juice or regular lime juice and it makes no difference. The only problem: I have to bake it way longer than the 10 minutes, as directed. It's usually ready after an hour of baking.
Easy to prepare. Very light lime flavor -- probably due to the citrus used not the recipe. However, I followed the recipe and found the pie to be a little runny -- even after sitting in the fridge overnight.
A delicious, light pie. After reading all reviews, I am very surprised that no one said that the temperature should be 350 degrees F. I baked pie for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and it is perfectly done.
This is the best key lime recipe I've ever made. The others are too custard tasting but this one, allows you to really enjoy the lime taste with the unique texture. Truly awesome!
This pie is very good though I found it a little light on the lime taste. I used the juice of three limes and the zest of all three limes and found that to be much better. Also, I left the pie in the oven for 20 minutes instead of 10 in order for it to set correctly. This is a very light dessert and everyone who's tried it has loved it so far.
Good pie. I agree with other reviews that the 10 minute baking time was too short. 20 min seemed about right.
I used bottled Key Lime juice (Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice) and that had the right flavor. (Some reviews commented on the lime flavor being light.)
I doubled the recipe and made 2 pies -- doubling worked well.
This is a delicious key lime pie! And so easy. I took it to my Supper Club and it got RAVES! Even the lady who 'never eats desert' asked for a bite....then asked for a piece! Thanks Carolyn! Oh yes, and I baked it for 30 minutes.
Just made this last night. I didn't use the Cool Whip though. It turned out great. I would cook it longer than 10 mins though. More like 30 mins.-45 mins.
It isn't dry or like pudding. I did have to make 2 pies, and both of them turned out fine.
