LIME ZEST AND LIME SLICES FOR
Gosh I have had this recipe for ever and a day...It is Tart and Sweet at the same time...as some would same it does have Pucker Power. It has always reminded me of when we used to go to Marie Callenders Restaurant I always ordered Key Lime Pie.
There are many variation of Florida Key classics, some made with flakey crust, but this is my favorite one. It is creamy, tart lime filling and topped with whipped cream and a wonderful garnish.
This is a stock picture for now till I put mine up.

Lightly spray pie plate with butter spray.
Blend crumbs, butter, and sugar in a bowl. Spoon into pie plate and, using wax paper press firmly against sides and bottom (not over rim). Bake 8-10 min Let cool before filling.
Serve with lime slices, you may want to sprinkle a bit of suger on the limes.
