The real deal!! I made a full size pie, not changing any amounts. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust. The filling is simply the 14 oz. condensed milk, 3 egg yolks and 1/2 cup key lime juice. Blend it smooth and pour into crust. Bake 350 for 15 min and chill. Proceed with the whipped topping as directed in recipe! You'll feel a little ray of Florida sunshine in every bite!

The filling on this is nice, certainly not 5 star rating but not bad at all. Which is why I'm giving this a 3 rather a 2. The use of the store bought cookie dough is what absolutely kills it. It gives it a horrible horrible taste. So much so I've tossed this batch. Do yourself a favor and take an extra 30 minutes to make your own shortbread.
