This is a great recipe, but for me it was way too sweet. 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk must have the equivalent of 10 cups of sugar in it! I experimented with two ways to cut the sweetness out, reducing the sweetened condensed milk to 1.5 cans instead of 2. In one I substituted sour cream, and the other I substituted evaporated milk (in a 1:1 volume ratio). I preferred the flavor of the pie with the evap milk substitution. Although it made it a little looser, it was still firm enough for a slice to hold it's shape.
I also included a teaspoon of finely ground coffee in the graham cracker crust (which is super easy to make; crush a package of graham crackers and mix with melted butter. Job done!) Really gives it a nice flavor to offset the citrus!
Also, don't look for bubbles because you'll never see them. DO NOT try to cook this for more than 10 minutes. There's no egg to cook here.
Thanks for this recipe!
