This key lime pie was better than the one we had in Florida! I used 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, Nellie & Joe's key lime juice and omitted the grated lime peel. I made a shortbread crust and homemade whipped topping. Crust: 24 Lorna Doonie cookies (crushed), 1 T sugar and 1/4 cup melted BUTTER. Mix together and pat down & up sides of a (slightly greased) 9-inch pie plate. Bake 325' for 10 minutes. Cool completely! Homemade whipped topping: Beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 t vanilla. Beat until stiff. Spread over entire pie. If you love key lime pie, this is the recipe for you!! You will NOT be disappointed!! Very easy and absolutely delicious! Truly a keeper! (Another suggestion is to drizzle a homemade raspberry sauce on the bottom of the plate before serving. :)
