    Rhonda in Texas's Note:

    This recipe came from my friend, Suzette. I love Key Lime pie and this is the best I have ever tasted! She combined several recipes (Southern Living) in one to make this perfect pie. It is sure to please!

      Really, really good. I left out the lime zest because I wanted a purely creamy texture. Also, I used an Italian meringue as topping. Super good!

      I was curious about the powdered sugar since condensed milk is already so sweet. I concluded that the real key limes aare more acidic and can take on the added sweetness. The texture is good, but a slight bitterness seems to come through, which I believe is from the zest. I would rather it not be added.

      Everything I dreamed it would be! Sweet, tangy, just bitter enough. I used the crust from Lorac's "Pappadeaux's Key Lime Pie" recipe, which calls for ground pecans. I used walnuts: I chopped 'em up in the blender w/ the graham cracker. Uber tasty!
