      This is an excellent Key Lime Pie. (FYI:It took me 2 pounds of Key Limes to make 1 cup of juice.) The sour cream topping is so much better than meringue or whipped cream. I didn't use the crust recipe, I love the combination of ginger and lime so I made a gingersnap crust instead of graham crackers which was very good. I will make this again and again and again...Thanks Mindy.

      I've been making different versions of key lime pies all summer; I do believe I've found "the one"! The sour cream topping makes this pie, although I did add a tad more powdered sugar to sweeten it up just a bit more. Next time, I would probably double the sour cream topping. Even my oldest son, who is not a fan of key lime pie, chowed this one down :)

      Friends raved over this who has lived in Key West said it was the best he has had since leaving the Keys. Very easy to make. Will make again. Be sure to use Key Lime juice.
