      I tried this out for a party and it did great, not even a scrap for us to take home. I absolutely loved the taste of the home made crust. This is one of the best Key Lime Pie recipies I have had, the filling is just great too. You should definitely try this pie!

      This pie was delicious. I made a regular sweet crust pastry as I didn't have any coconut. I sieved the mixture to smooth it out before pouring into the pie shell. My family were very pleased!! I will definitely try the coconut base next time.

      I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars! I love Key Lime Pie better than anything and I've had some very good and some not so good. This recipe is, by far, the best key lime filling I have ever tasted. I love how the sour cream mellows the taste of the sweetened condensed milk. So many recipes just call for the condensed milk, egg yolks and lime juice and to me the condensed milk taste is more predominate over the lime flavor. Not so with this recipe. I did leave out the rum this time, but next time I will add it. The coconut crust was quite tasty also but for those who don't like coconut a regular graham cracker/vanilla wafer crust will work perfectly. Thank you so much for this recipe. It is the only key lime pie recipe I will ever use from now on.
