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.
