Reviews for Marshmallow-Almond Key Lime Pie
"The filling in this keylime pie is wonderful; however, as a preference, I used a homemade shortbread butter crust and homemade whipped cream on top. It was perfect!"
"This sounds absolutely yummy.came across it while looking for certain cheesecake recipe. Can this be made into a cheesecake ?"
"This pie is amazing. I have made it twice now. Better than anything you can get even at fine restaurants."
"This was an excellent spin on key lime pie. No, it's not like the original key lime pie, but was delicious just the same. The person who says none of the key lime pie recipes on this site taste like key lime pie must not be using the same ingredients I do! Thank you for this recipe. P.S. My family all agreed I should share this recipe in our church cookbook, which I have."
"HORRIBLE! Didin't even taste like a key lime pie! None of the key lime recipes on this site do!"
"I made this with a premade graham cracker crust. It wa delicious!!!"
"this is great Key Lime pie, DO NOT use regular limes or lime juice, sorry, but it just won't be the same. You must use Key Limes, or Nellie's Key Lime Juice from Whole Foods. It's worth it!"
"Best Key Lime pie I've EVER had!!!!! Using freshly squeezed key limes makes the flavor so sweet and delicious! It's amazing!!!! I can't wait to make it again!"
