    Really simple recipe, used 8 limes in total (6/7 for juice 1 for decoration). Tastes great  -  12 May 2014


    This pie is the BEST!! So easy too! Just a few notes: 3/4 cup Key Lime juice is = to about 20 Key limes. I used a garlic press to squeeze the limes quickly and easily (cut limes in half). 3 Cups of sweetened condensed milk = about 2 cans. Perfect recipe! Impress your friends and enjoy!  -  05 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe. I am from Florida and have had many key lime pies when visiting key west. This is the most authentic tasting pie I have ever made at home. What is best is that it is SO SIMPLE! You can literally whip it up in no time. I used home made whipped topping (heavy whipping cream with a touch of sugar and vanilla) and spread it over the entire pie. I made this for my husbands birthday dinner party. I have since made this pie 3 more times. Everytime we are invited to dinner friends ask me to make this pie for them, it is PERFECT! Do not try another key lime pie recipe on this site, this is the only one you need!  -  04 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
