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!

This was so tasty! For the sake of ease, I used a store bought low fat graham cracker crust. I also used fat free sweetened condensed milk, splenda, and fat free cool whip. By the taste you'd never know it was low-fat/low calorie. Everyone at the dinner party just loved it and I loved that it was so easy to make!

This is a delicious version of one of my favorites. In efforts to reduce the sugar somewhat, I used my Graham-cracker Crust (microwave) for the crust and Splenda in place of the powdered sugar. The pie was garnished with fresh lime zest. Thanks for posting this recipe.
