Fabulous! Really hit the spot! The meringue IS perfect.
Excellent, thank you! I made this without the meringue and it was excellent.
This is like the pie I used to make years and years ago! I lost the recipe and have been trying those other versions which are good, but THIS is the one. I've made a couple in the last few days and will be making a third for Thanksgiving - picked up another bag of key limes today just for this! Once you have this pie, the others are missing "something". Lovely intensity if you enjoy the Key Lime. I also now use eggs from my very free chickens which are so rich, the custard is even better. Every bite's a treat. Thank you so much, Big Cheese!
My family thanks you for this recipe. My dad came back to Ontario from visiting Florida with a bag of keylimes and couldn't wait for a key lime pie. I made this for him tonight and he really, really enjoyed it! It was very easy to make. I used a graham/oat crust #32495 to give it some extra sweetness. The crust was good. I think i'll stick to the traditional crust next time I get an imported bag of key limes. Thanks again!
I made the pie as written without the meringue, but it never set up in the refrigerator. Tasted fine, but it was closer to pudding than pie.
Easy and a total success! I gave it four stars because it is missing instructions to make it without the meringue, so I had to figure that on my own.
