This is the best! Being a Floridian, I have had my share of both very good and very bad Key Lime Pie. I did make a few changes to the recipe after reading the reviews. I only used 4 egg yolks, I used 2 cans sweetened condensed milk, and I used 1 cup key lime juice. Hint**If you can not find any key lime juice then just use equal parts lemon and lime juice (best if fresh). These adjustments will make more filling than needed, but the texture and taste is better. I had to increase my baking time by 15 minutes. I prebaked my redi-crust and this came out great. The new #1 key lime pie for my family.


As other reviewers mentioned, I used 4 egg yolks, 1 cup of lime juice, and 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk. This was just the right amount to fit in the premade pie shell. I then decorated it using whip cream and a pastry bag and garnished with lime wedges. Let's just say, the family was impressed not only with the taste but also with the appearance. Great pie!!!


This was so unbelievably easy to make & produced such a delicious key lime pie! I first made it in August for my mother-in-law's visit & wasn't sure how the recipe was going to turn out. But it came out wonderfully & my mother-in-law could not stop raving about it! I had to print her a copy of this recipe before she left for the airport, & I have also emailed it to my sister-in-law upon her mom's request that she try this recipe. It has the perfect amount of richness & tartness for us (a small sliver goes a long way). The whipped cream topping was a beautiful touch! I used a Keebler reduced fat graham cracker crust & altered the recipe according to another reviewer's suggestions. I used 4 egg yolks, 2 (14 oz) cans of sweetened condensed milk, & 1 cup of bottled key lime juice. i had to bake for 20-25 minutes instead of just 15 minutes. We found out that it also tastes best when refrigerated for at least several hours. Hope you enjoy this pie as much as my family & I did!
