I used fresh key limes because I have a tree in my yard, and I wanted to find the perfect recipe! This was it! Several extended family members commented that this was the best key lime pie they have ever tasted! I followed the recipe exactly as directed. Awesome!

Once you put the custard in the pie shell you better cook for 30 minutes. Will not be set in 10 minutes. Been making this for 42 years.

i wanted a simple key lime pie recipe to make quickly and saw this one. the pie had to bake for 30 minutes and really tasted like sweetened condensed milk. it also didn't hava a good lime flavor, there just wasn't enough. this pie was okay, but not anything i would make for a party
