"This is the 3rd time my son has requested this pie in just a couple months. It is very flavorful and a wonderful spin on Key-Lime Pie. I will be making this many more times to come!"

"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."
