Please take note that this recipe calls for key limes, not the regular limes in the store! If you are using regular limes, they are not the same and they do not taste the same. Key limes aren't much bigger than an avocado seed, and they should be yellow in color. Can't find key limes? Buy Nellie and Joe's key lime juice in the juice aisle, it's a good substitution and no squeezing. Anyway.. this pie was perfect! I followed the directions exactly (using just under 2 cans of condensed milk) and it made a 9" pie to the brim, plus plenty of extra left over to bake in a ramekin without a crust for my gluten free daughter. Both turned out perfectly! It tasted better than I ever expected. I've had KLP in Key West, so I know what it should taste like. This is really, really close. 8 minutes in the oven is perfect, and make sure you add the zest to the filling. Let it sit overnight in the fridge - this is a must or the flavored won't be fully incorporated. If you love real key lime pie, you won't be disappointed!
