The thing to keep in mind with this cake is that the key lime juice makes it very tart, but does not have a strong 'lime' taste. The lime flavor comes from the zest. I followed the directions for the filling, and found that it was very tart, but I could not identify a strong lime flavor. In the future, I think I would cut down slightly on the juice, but add a little bit more zest. That way it will be good and limey, but won't make me pucker with each bite! For the crust, I added 1/4 c. sugar, and I baked it for 6 min. at 375 before adding the filling. I like a crispier crust.
