Followed recipe exactly but only used one drop of food coloring and I could only find regular limes at the store. This is super easy and incredibly yummy! I would say to defiantly use the lime zest to counter act the sweetness and I LOVE the LIME flavor. Thanks for such a great recipe!
this was the quickest pie i've ever made! it was a little too sweet, but a dollop of cool whip on top mellowed the flavor out perfectly!
This was really yummy and super easy to make. Even my hubby said "I loved the lemon key lime pie baby| =0) I really miss all the acessabilithy to ingredients that I took for granted in the states. Here in the England there is no such thing as grahm crackers or grahm cracker crust as I soon found out. I improvised and made my own crust with some cookies or should I say biscuits as the brits like to call them . Morrisons sells some thing called Honey Teddy Bears. Teddy Bear Biscuits with Honey. I also used Foxes ginger crinkles. I crushed and combined both of theses cookies and followed recipe http://www.recipezaar.com/116887 subistituing my crushed ginger biscuits and honey teady bears for the grahm crackers.
This was really really good. I can't remember if I ever even wanted to try Key Lime pie in the past, just that my husband mentioned he liked it. So I tried this recipe and we both agree...delicious. I had to take out of freezer about 8 min too soon as I had to pick my hubby up from the airport and didnt want to come back to a frozen pie, and this worried me that it would make a big difference. I took it out of the freezer and left it out in my well insulated Texas home (in the summer). It looked fine when I returned and I tasted it. It was very rich. Almost too rich to enjoy. But then I put it in the fridge forgetting about it and came back and tasted it again. This time I guess all the flavor had leveled out and it was De-licious!!! If anyone tells me they like Key Lime pie, Jesus willing I am making this one. I also chose to use one drop of food coloring which to me gave it just enough green without looking artificial and one teaspoon of key lime zest. I couldn't find key lime juice, just lime juice, and everything tasted wonderful. Comparing key lime zest to lime zest/key lime juice to lime juice probably wouldn't make a difference in taste at all. That's just my opinion though I have only made this once. Oh and I added cool whip around the edges at first but then went back and covered the whole pie. :) Thanks for sharing! I made with basic graham cracker crust. The perfect blend!
I made this for dessert and we liked it very much. I'm a big fan of lemon pies so this was right up my alley. I will make this many times over as it was delicious. Thank you for posting.
This was a fabulous recipe!! Very easy and oh so nummy. I put cool whip on top and I think it would be great with a merigue topping. I put the filling in 8 little graham cracker crusts instead and baked them for about 12 min. Everyone gobbled them up!!! Thanks Miss Diggy
Being a huge Key Lime pie fan, I had high hopes for this recipe - it's been years since I've been able to eat one. I made this as a company dessert, and although I thought it was pretty good, both my husband and my guests hated it. It was very easy to make - I made a gluten-free gingerbread cookie crust - and it looked very nice, but the flavor was just okay...and it was very sweet.
Hmm... I wasn't sure at first what to rate this. With all these great reviews I was expecting different... preparing this was a breeze, and I loved that. I wasn't quite sure when to take it out of the oven... but that's ok. I chilled it for 25 or so minutes, after letting cool for 10 or more on the counter. I put the pan on top of a cookie pan in the oven, and the bottom was completely greasy after baking! -?- The taste was good. Not more than good. I think the crust really made this pie... Plain Graham Cracker Crust. Although I will probably make this again... trying to fix these small issues. Thanks for the recipe!! =)
I was a little disappointed with this recipe. I liked the fact that it set better than another recipe I tried that did not call for any oven time. Baking it helped it set so that it was not runny. However, it was not as sweet as the other recipe I used that was runny. I was thinking about adding more sweetened condensed milk to this recipe. Any thoughts?
I love key lime pie and this is the first one I have ever made. It was sooooooo freakin' easy and OH sooooo GOOD!!! Thank you!! Hubby is a very happy man. :) Will be making lots of these. I had to use regular lime juice because I couldn't find any key lime juice and didn't have time to juice any and it still was MMMMMMM good. Big hit at the potluck at work today.
