This is one of my tried and true recipes I have used for years. Everyone always asks for the recipe. I garnish with very thinly sliced limes and grated lime (see pic). I do not add additional whipping cream--I think it is too much. The result is a beautiful, yummy dish! Thanks for posting!
I am a Key Lime Pie fanatic and all I can say is WOW! I had never made this pie before and enjoyed the taste testing and the beautiful colors. I highly recommend this recipe if you are a Lime lover!
This is the first time ever that I have made and eaten a Lime Pie and I could't stop myself from pinching the filling before filling the pie crusts. I used the juice and zest of 2 Tahitian Lime and made sure that the eggs I used were very fresh. I accidentally left some egg whites in the yolks but these cooked white and I could see them to remove it. For step 6, please remember to stir occasionally as you want to have a smooth gelatine mixture when you mix it with the egg white. This is enough to make a 9inch pie. I had problems with my crust so ended up with a 9 inch and a 7 inch pie. I'm very glad I made this. My hubby loves the pie and he doesn't like limes. ;-)
