    I made this yesterday for my wife's birthday. I used a gluten free graham cracker crust for my family's allergies. It turned out fantastic. The pie was a hit with all my family. The next time I may try a commercial brand whipped cream vs. having to whip it myself since the garnish didn't turn out for me. that's just the smallest of nit picks. Highly recommend.

    Great recipe! I've made similar recipe for years. You can substitute 1-8oz cool whip for whipping cream and add additional cool whip for garnish

    Loved the citrus taste. Easy to assemble, but make sure it has ample time to freeze and set up - can't rush this recipe.

    I felt like it was a liitle too weak in lime taste so I added about 1 teaspoon of lime zest and that did the trick. All in all, a real refreshing treat that doesn't leave you feeling guilty

    Lemon juice also works well for a refreshing change of pace! Very delicious!

    I made this pie a few days ago and my husband and I both LOVED it! Tangy with a hint of sweetness, it was perfectly balanced and absolutely delicious! I used regular lime juice in place of the key lime juice and it worked just fine. I was amazed at how high the pie was after I piled it into the crust!The next time I make it, I'm going to try spreading Cool Whip over the top-my husband's suggestion-and split the pie into two instead of one singular.All in all, a wonderful and refreshing pie for Spring! This recipe is definitely one I'm going to keep!
