    Just horrible, I really wanted to make these I read reviews after I had bought the ingredients. I tried it with half the amount of sweetened condensed milk per other review. Can't make into balls so sticky even put in the refrigerator first still didn't work. Just gross and nasty no lime taste at all. Dumped them all in the garage. Don't waste your time and money on these.

    Balls? More like soup. This is the worst recipe Iand#039;ve ever used. I even added a full cup more graham crackers, and after overnight in the fridge, itand#039;s still barely stiffened up. The flavor is graham cracker, no lime hint found. Threw it in the trash, a complete waste of ingredients.

    I LOVE a soft cookie. That said, I ignored the reviews and made this as-is. And the review are right. This Was way too gooey and was lacking that wonderful tartness of the lime. But I fixed it on the next batch. I used roughly half of the can of condensed milk and doubled the juice and zest. Condensed milk isnand#039;t known for setting very well and it doesnand#039;t need this much.the next batch was thicker and much more key-limey. Hope this helps!

    Tasty but way too gooey. I will use my other lime for a key lime cookie that gets baked!
