This pie is so simple, yet absolutely amazing! Brought it to family Easter dinner and everyone loved it, even the most discriminating Key Lime pie lovers in the family. I made the recipe as is, using 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, which was perfect. Key limes were not available, so I used key lime juice (found in the juice section of the grocery store). The juice is made in Florida, and the flavor was wonderful. I made a homemade graham cracker/shortbread cookie crust which was a great balance to the filling. Easy to make, 3/4 cup crushed graham crackers, 3/4 cup crushed Lorna Doone cookies, 1/2 cup sugar and 6 Tbsp melted butter. Bake the crust for 7 minutes and let cool before putting the filling in the crust. I baked the pie for approx. 12 minutes and it was perfectly set. (we live at high altitude and this was still perfect). Do take the time use the lime zest, it does add something to the pie. The next time I make this will be for my daughter's high school graduation party as part of the requested "pie bar". This pie is definitely a "10" in my book!
