    yooper's Note:

    I have a good friend that loves Key Lime Pie. I saw this in the current issue of "Bon Appetit" and immediately baked one up for her. She was not dissapointed. She said this version was one of the best she's ever tasted! I agree.

      Have been on a key lime pie fix lately and have added this wonderful recipe to my "winner" group. Used a premade graham cracker crust (time/lack of ingredients). The 2 layers were indeed yummy and made this pie more complex than a regular key lime pie. I used Nellie's bottled key lime juice and that always works just as good as fresh squeezed, I think. And I'm a South Florida gal! This pie has a good slight tartness, but it certainly is not over-the-top tart at all. (1/2 cup of key lime juice is the norm, though some do call for 2/3 cup) I added a final layer of slightly sweetened whipped cream. Served for company and they enjoyed it, too. BTW I baked the first layer at 350 degrees for approx. 15 minutes which is plenty of baking time for a key lime pie. Used a deep dish typed of graham cracker crust. The size is slightly larger than the regular ones. I think it's called "2 extra servings" size. Works well with this pie because of the added 2nd layer and whipped cream topping. Super fast and easy to make, especially if using bottled key lime juice. Note: do not use regular bottled lime juice- not the same at all. Great recipe!!

      I made this pie yesterday and it turned out beautifully! I made it with a pre-bought graham cracker pie crust, but it was still SO WONDERFUL!!! My husband is raving about it! I tend to mess up when baking, but this seemed mess up proof. I already have requests from him to make it again. Thanks so much for this recipe, deffinatly a keeper!

      Yummy pie-we chose it to use up some leftover granola cereal. We used a spring form pan as mentioned in another review and it turned out wonderful. Just the right balance of sweet and tart. The kids loved the layers. Thank you!
