Gotta love how easy this is! Have made this pie three times now, each one slightly different, followed the original recipe other than where noted. 1) Swapped 8oz of "whipped" cream cheese in for one can of the SCM per another reviewers suggestion, only 2tsp lime zest - too tart for my tastes since it's missing half of the SCM, but it set beautifully and the texture was great. 2) Stuck to the original recipe - came out very good but maybe a tad too sweet and the texture wasn't quite as nice as the previous cream cheese version [rate this recipe 4.5 stars]. 3) Somewhere in the middle; 2 cans SCM, nearly 1 cup key lime juice, 4oz whipped cream cheese and a larger graham crust that says "2 extra servings" on the label (fit perfectly) - Delicious! Baked all 3 times at 350 for about 12-14 mins, no browning. Used bottled "Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice" and, couldn't help myself, 1 drop of green food coloring just because I think it looks pretty. Tried a shortbread crust once, but personally prefer the more hearty graham crust. GREAT recipe overall that was a JOY to experiment with, thank you for sharing it!
