    FloridaNative's Note:

    This is my mom's recipe for Key Lime Pie - she hand wrote "excellent" on it. Mimi used to make this for my DH, as it is his favorite pie. Originally from the Citrus Club, this recipe calls for fresh key limes.

      This is AMAZING! I have never made a key lime pie before, and I must say those little key limes can take time to juice. However, it is so worth it. My guests all exclaimed how this was the best key lime pie they have ever had in their life! Need I say more? If you are going to make key lime pie, this is the only recipe you will ever need. Thanks for posting this. Made for Potluck Tag Game.

      I am disappointed as I followed the directions exactly and my pie is not cooked. I thought it would firm up in the fridge since it was only in the oven for 5 minutes. However I just got home from working an 8 hour shift and the pie is still soupy, it didn't set up as I had hoped.
