This is a wonderful key lime pie! It is a bit more tart than others I've tried, but probably because I didn't add whipping cream. I loved how easy this was to make, and how quickly it came together. I had to force myself to let it chill before trying it, and it was worth the wait! Made for PAC Spring 2010!
