    s'kat's Note:

    I made this for my grandparent's 61st wedding anniversary recently. They lived in Florida in their youth, and loved Joe's Stone, and have lamented on occasion that they will never be able to go back (they now live in Virginia). The family rallied 'round and ordered the crab claws directly from Joe's, got a Joe's Stone Crab Cookbook, and prepared the rest of the meal directly from it. What a fantastic surprise it was... and this was a very sweet end to the night. NOTE: I was only able to find about 8 key limes, which wasn't enough juice. I supplemented with Nellie & Joe's Key Lime juice without a problem. Also, I thought the pie was so rich it didn't even need any whipped cream.

      Key Lime Pie just doesn't get any better than this! Key Lime Pie is one of my favorites and this pie is so very easy to make. I cheated a little and used a ready made graham cracker crust and also needed to supplement some of the lime juice with refridgerated Florida Key West Key Lime Juice. Otherwise, I made exactly as directed for an excellent pie! Thanks for a wonderful dessert, s'kat!
