It's easy to make, requires only a few ingredients, and tastes great! All around good recipe. I used a Keebler pre-made graham crust and Nellie and Joe's bottled key lime juice to save time. I also don't like overly sweet desserts and tasted the mixture before pouring it into my crust, and here's what I changed to make it more palatable for me. I only used 1 and a half can of the sweetened condensed milk and substituted the rest with coconut milk (you can use coconut cream as well) and used a little extra sour cream. I also added the zest of one regular lime and in a small ramekin, I made a similar mixture with a few drops of peppermint extract, as I thought a creamy, coconutty, tart, and a zing of refreshing mint would make it more interesting. I baked the pie for approximately 15 minutes, as the pinhole bubbles are kinda hard to see, but it was fine. I let it rest in the oven for a bit, then let it cool off on the counter before storing it in the fridge to chill. My boyfriend said the smaller "sample/experiment" key lime pie tasted kinda like a peppermint patty. I thought it was good but if you try this, be careful to not add too much mint as it will take away from the creamy/tartness of the actual pie. The coconut milk was a nice variation if you're looking to try something slightly different.
