Super easy for someone who doesn't make pies! I have made this pie 3 times in 2 weeks. The first pie I used 3/4 cups of Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Key Lime Juice vs. squeezing limes (no time/no patience) and left out the zest. I only used 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk (14oz) based on other reviews. I thought the pie was good, but very, very tart. So I made another one to take to a cookout the next day. This time I did everything the same as above but cut back and only used 2/3 cup of the Key Lime Juice and threw in a pinch of salt. To my surprise there was a "Key Lime Pie Connoisseur" in attendance. ugh! She talked and talked about where the "BEST" Key lime pie was in Florida..blah blah... So I held my breath when she went for a slice. She later approached me and said, "That was one of the BEST Key Lime Pies I have ever had!" SCORE one for ME! I had many more compliments that day over the pie. My husband who isn't a fan of Key Lime even said, I don't know what you did different with this second pie but it was fantastic. I think using a little less of the Key Lime juice did the trick, I guess the stuff in bottle is a little more potent then what you get from fresh squeezed.
Pie #3 was just for my family and YUMMY! I do like to keep it in the freezer and eat it very, very chilled w/a little whipped cream.
Nellie and Joe's Key West Famous Key Lime Juice; Bakery isle or Juice isle in local grocery stores.
Thank you for a great receipt.
