    10 min

    These are a bit labour intensive but worth it. Fresh limes and a good lime squeezer are a must.

    Terrific! I made this exactly as written with one exception - used Stevia (fake sugar) in place of sugar. It's hard to tell how much juice a lime will provide so these will taste a tad bit limey-differently each time. ENJOY!  -  04 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This one is worth all the effort, I used 4 key limes and 2 tsp. of Splenda sweetner, all that I need now is some beach sand to sink my toes into! Thanks for the great recipe!  -  26 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These did not turn out how we had hoped...and they were WAY too strong!  -  14 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
