This was super easy to make and quick, which having 3 boys and another on the way is vital to me. I added some green food coloring, and as I didn't have any key lime juice I just used regular lime juice. I know it's not the same, but the kids kept asking for more and I had to force my self to stop at one slice. Very Good!

This is the recipe off of the Nellie and Joe's Key Lime Juice bottle. I was nervous making it because I had to use Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk instead of the purchased sweetened condensed milk. But the recipe worked great. I had to bake my pie about 10 minutes longer (for a total of 25 minutes) than this recipe states. It set up well in the refrigerator for 1 day. I did not add any green food coloring to the filling. The filling turned out a very pretty lemony yellow color.

Very authentic . . . creamy and no artificial coloring, just like Nellie makes in Key West! Using KEY LIMES are the key to success for this recipe!

This was not at all like Key Lime Pie I've had in the past, sorry but none of us were impressed with it

Very nice, tart, limey flavor and light, creamy texture. I was really surprised at how well this turned out, because the batter with the sweetened condensed milk smelled and looked absolutely vile. The finished product didn't look or smell a whole lot better. I was so worried that I made another dessert to take to my potluck. I almost threw this pie out without tasting it. However, the household food critic and I both liked it quite well. I highly recommend using the green food coloring. I didn't, and the color turned out to be a beige-yellow -- not very appetizing for a lime pie.

We made this from the bottle and checked to see if it was posted. A really great, easy, delicious recipe. We made it in mini graham crusts, and they were perfect!
