2 (14 ounce) cans

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
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.
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 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's a nice creamy pie and easy enough to make. I cooked for 30 min as another reviewer suggested and that was perfect. For my taste it there just wasn't enough lime kick.
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!
Made this pie instead of a traditional birthday cake and received rave reviews from guests. Key lime is hard to find so when you do, you can squeeze out juice and freeze until next use. Great recipe. Thank you.
