Ok, this is the second time I've made this pie. The first one, I would of given it 3 stars. I couldn't find key limes so I went to the liquor store and bought a bottle of key lime concentrate. I forgot to buy a lime so I didn't add the rind in it. I didn't see any bubbles when I baked it. I tasted the pie about 6 hours later after being in the fridge. It was ok. I tasted more of the condensed milk instead of the limes. I, however, did like the firmness. The second time I made this, I did find some key limes in a bag and remembered to buy a lime. I purchased 1 regular condensed milk and one fat free, hoping it would lessen the flavor of the milk. It took a long time to press out the juice of the key limes. I ended up using the whole bag and gave me 1 cup. Everything else was the same. Still no bubbles on the second time, even after 12 mins. The second time was the winner! It was very tart, like the way we like it and full of flavor. No condensed milk flavor at all. It wasn't as firm as the first pie, but I do recommend the pie to be in the fridge for over 6 hours to firm and flavors to gel together. 2 big thumbs up!
