This recipe is so-o-o simple and so delicious and even if you are diabetic you can still enjoy by just using Splenda instead of sugar! I started making this when I was on the Atkins Diet years ago--my one indulgence!
You also can use bottled Key Lime Juice, but I promise you it just doesn't taste quite as good as the real deal!

Cool on wire rack till cool enough to cover with plastic lid that comes with the pie shell and place in refrigerator till totally cooled (about 4 hours). Be sure to wait till cooled all the way. Spray top of slice with Redi-Whip, if desired, when ready to eat. ENJOY! (Store in refrigerator.)
