Key Lime Pie has always been a favorite....that cool, creamy, sweet and tart flavor explosion! One of my husband's customers shared her recipe with me (it came from a chef in Key West - and they know key lime pie!) Friends and family request this one over and over. Making this pie the day before adds to the flavor. This is an easy version, with lots of flavor, and not much time in the kitchen....could a girl ask for anything more?
