    I have a dear friend who once traveled throughout Florida seeking the perfect key lime pie. He swears this recipe is better than anything he tasted on his quest, and he sampled a lot of pies!

      I loved this pie for the fact that it was very quick and easy and it contained ingredients that I normally have on hand. My family enjoyed it too. I don't think it was the best key lime we've ever had but do plan to make it again in the future.

      I loved this pie. I had ordered Key Lime juice and lime powder from KAF and this looked like the perfect recipe to try them out and I do love tart! Other than a few minor changes I followed the recipe exactly and found this perfect. I used a prepared graham crust to save time, added 1 tsp of lime powder (I do love tart) and extra lime zest to the mix prior to baking. I was a little nervous that the amount was going to be way to much for the pie crust and even considered cutting it back. So glad I didn't as it was PERFECT. Being I'm pretty new to this baking stuff and specially pies I wasn't sure if you meant Sweetened condensed milk or if it was the evaporated stuff - decided it had to be the sweetened based on the size of the can and bet it's a good thing I went that way. I also added a few drops of green food coloring as the color looked off to me and the end results was a pie I'd be proud to show off to anyone -This is a true Key lime champion. Thanks so much for posting.
