The Best Key Lime Pie
No-bake pies are the best. did you try my No-Bake Chocolate Cream Pie or Mile High Strawberry Jello Pie? They are both fantastic. For many years I worked in restaurants serving Key Lime Pie. However, I don’t think I ever tried it. Not sure why. For some reason, I thought I wouldn’t like it. Boy was I wrong. It is so good with a cross between sweet and tart. The sweetened condensed milk and the powdered sugar give it the sweet and the lime makes it tart.
So gotta say al the recipes that I looked at said you have to use key limes or key lime juice. Well since I have no idea what a key lime is -regular fresh limes definitely made a delicious pie. Now like I said, this is the first time I ever tried this pie, therefore I had nothing to compare it to.
My recipe was inspired by the recipe I found on the insert of my diamond pecan premade crust. You can find it and other great recipes athttps://www.diamondnuts.com/product/nut-pie-crusts/. We made a few adjustments to make it our own.
