Key Lime Pie is the creamiest, dreamiest dessert and this is the only recipe I will ever make. Keep the ingredients simple and the baking is so worth it for an authentic, fresh taste!
Fresh and ripe key limes are important to the proper taste of this pie. Limes that are too tart or sour will result in a pie that will also reflect those qualities. If you cannot find fresh limes, you may substitute key lime juice. I have heard good recommendations for Nellie's, although it isn't available in my area. Do not use regular limes.
