This is an easy and perfect summer dessert. Delicious pretzel crust, I don't think I'll make a graham cracker crust again! I have never changed a recipe in my life until now. I added 4 oz. of softened cream cheese to the mixture. This will for sure stay in my recipe file!
I never knew how easy key lime pie was! I doubled the mixture (one was not enough to even cover the crust). I liked the pretzel crust, too, after about three days. Before that, it tasted kind of stale Overall, a pretty good recipe.
Update: tried it again with cream cheese...yuck! Much better the way it's written.
Tastes good, recipes needs to state that you have to crush the pretzels until they are TOTALLY crushed..like bread crumbs..found that out after my first crust fell apart. Also used fresh lime juice. YUM. ANd easy to make!
This is a great recipe! I had never had a pretzel crust until this. The salty / sweet / tangy / creamy effects all together are really good. I double the filling recipe and add in 8oz of cream cheese. So that everyone knows that it's a key lime pie, I also add in a couple drops of green food coloring. There is a little filling left over after I fill the crust but it's good because my family and I can't wait- so instead of getting into the pie, we dip pretzels into the leftover filling as a snack! It's awesome!
I love this pie. Easy to make and tastes great. The only problem I ever have is that the crust doesn't quite stick together but I'll try extra butter and see if that works. I also sprinkle the extra crust filling on top of the pie and the family loves it.
My husband loves Key Lime Pie! I choose this recipe over all others because of the Pretzel Crust. I doubled the recipe, added 4oz of softened cream cheese (beaten in mixer 1st), added 1/2 cup more Key Lime juice. I used the beater with the mixer at high speed to whip all the ingredients. It set up very good overnight! Yummy!
I made this in a 9x9 pan, and it was wonderful! I made the crust and filling as directed, then I spread the topping all over the filling and sprinkled fresh lime zest on top before serving. It looked beautiful and tasted great.
Incredibly easy, simple ingredients, and sooooo good! I got raves about the buttery pretzel crust. In key lime season you could use the real thing to freshen up the filling and garnish the top, but the rest of the year this scratches the key-lime pie itch without a lot of hassle.
