      Extremely good!! I made it because my wife had a craving for key lime pie for months. I've always found it 'okay', but this recipe has made me realize that good homemade key lime pie is deee-licious!! I think I'll be the one with cravings next.<br/>BTW, I used 1/2 c of freshly squeezed key lime juice. And Chef#210523 is right that the cinnamon offsets the tartness perfectly.<br/>Update 2 years later: We still make this for special occasions and it's become a regular challenge when we travel to find somewhere that makes a better one than "our" recipe - it's still the champ beating out many famous restaurants' versions.

      This is a wonderful, light recipe. The hint of cinnamon in the crust compliments the tartness of the key lime juice. I use a full 1/2 cup of lime juice and the taste is great!!!

      Awesome recipe!!! I love the texture of the pie with the egg whites folded in! the only changes I made was in the crust... I've been on a Nilla Wafer kick so I used Nilla wafer crumbs and I substituted light brown sugar for the regular sugar... turned out AMAZING!
