The BEST key lime pie you will ever make. Just so you know 3/4 cup key lime juice is is about 20 key limes and 3 cups of sweetened condensed milk is equal to about 2 cans. Take the extra time to make Graham crust yourself by mixing 1/3 cup sugar, 6 tablespoons melted butter and about ten sheets of crushed Graham crackers (or 1.5 c. of crumbs) and press into pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes at 325, let cool a little, add filling and bake as the recipe states. I have lived in Florida and eaten a lot of Key Lime Pies (not saying how many haha) and this one is the perfect mix of sweet and tart flavors and you will be amazed such a simple recipe can make such a yummy pie. Enjoy!
