This is a really good pie! I've had many key lime pies that were just so-so. I was able to find the little key limes in my regular grocery store but wasn't looking forward to squeezing them. Luckily, my husband found the key lime juice at Smart and Final (of all places!). I didn't have quite enough and still had to juice about 8 little limes. Otherwise I stuck to the recipe exactly. So incredibly easily! I wasn't sure whether to add the zest, but I did. Added a nice subtle zing and homemade feeling. Made it for Thanksgiving and people who don't normally like pies or anything sweet, loved this pie! I plan on making it again and again. Will be my go to pie. Next time I might try making my own graham cracker crust, but the store bought was a big hit too. I used 2 cans condensed milk like the other reviewers said and it was perfect. Had exactly enough for a nicely filled, full 9 in regular pie. Added whipped cream and the lime decorations before serving, and it looked so pretty and professional. It was almost impossible to see the pinholes at 6-8 min, so cooked for 10 and it was perfect. I could see the pinholes when I took it out (incredibly hard to see and so small, that I say just cook 10 min and be done). Set perfectly, no problems. Giving it 5 stars for being so tasty and so EASY.
