Emerils Key Lime Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Top Review by Northwest Suechef

This is an excellent Key Lime Pie. (FYI:It took me 2 pounds of Key Limes to make 1 cup of juice.) The sour cream topping is so much better than meringue or whipped cream. I didn't use the crust recipe, I love the combination of ginger and lime so I made a gingersnap crust instead of graham crackers which was very good. I will make this again and again and again...Thanks Mindy.
