I used fresh key limes because I have a tree in my yard, and I wanted to find the perfect recipe! This was it! Several extended family members commented that this was the best key lime pie they have ever tasted! I followed the recipe exactly as directed. Awesome!
i wanted a simple key lime pie recipe to make quickly and saw this one. the pie had to bake for 30 minutes and really tasted like sweetened condensed milk. it also didn't hava a good lime flavor, there just wasn't enough. this pie was okay, but not anything i would make for a party
The BEST key lime pie recipe! I've never made it before - made it for my dad's birthday. The entire family loved it. Held it's form very well. Whipped cream was also the perfect amount of sweetness and cream! Love love love. Will never use another recipe again for key lime!
My First time making a pie at all. Easy to follow instructions, and no intimidating ingredients. Nice sweet and tart balance. Next time, I'll get a zester, was a bit much to zest with my serrated knife!
Once you put the custard in the pie shell you better cook for 30 minutes. Will not be set in 10 minutes. Been making this for 42 years.
my whole family loved this! i cheated because i used already-made graham crusts that were given to me by someone who bought them by accident, so i was trying to think of something to use with them. this fit the bill perfectly! since i love pecans, i chopped some and sprinkled them on the crust before browning in the oven. i was skeptical about the whipping cream on top, but it was delicious and i look forward to making this again! if i ever make the crust from scratch, i will add pecans throughout the mixture. a local restaurant here does that with their key lime pie and it's great. it gives the crust more substance.
It was great! It was my first attempt at key lime pie and I am going to make it again very soon. The only change is that I had to bake the pie longer in the oven to get it more cooked for the slightly bubbly top. About 8-10 londer than the recipe states.
I needed an egg-free recipe for this bc of my g'daughter's allergies to eggs. I then added 2 more TBS of lime juice and saved time by filling indiv. graham tart shells. I cooked 20 mins waiting for the 'bubbles' to appear but didn't. So when I saw the edges cooking, I took them out of oven. I filled a shallow container with leftover filling, and wouldn't you know, it was a great, creamy consistency w/o any cooking! Next time I will just fill and chill overnight and NO cooking. It's summer, no need to bake bc it doesn't use eggs.
