Key Lime Pie

My grandparents lived in Key West when they were first married in the early 50's. My grandmother kept this recipe, which she always made sure to tell us was an "authentic Key West Key Lime Pie recipe." :) It doesn't have meringue or whipped cream, although adding a dollop of whipped cream makes it even more delicious!
