    ~SarahBeth~'s Note:

    This is my version of a key lime pie, it is traditional, no tweaks and nothing like zest thrown in! I make it with real eggs, real sugar and real milk -- so expect real calories. I always top with home-made whipped cream. I will put what I use to make it at the bottom, but I have never measured it so I can't help there :( . And I use plain white sugar instead of confectioners sugar (I had never even heard of canfectioners sugar in whipped cream until I joined here!) Also, it is very important to use key-lime juice. I have subbed regular in a pinch but it's not a fresh tasting.

      This is a great version of Key Lime Pie. (Tho I do usually add lime zest, LOL) I was living in San Francisco, when I first made Key Lime Pie years ago and could not find key lime juice!?! So I ordered a bottle online from Florida, the bottle lasted about 8 months, well worth it. Thanks for posting Sarah.

      This was very good. I didn't have key lime juice, the stores here don't sell it. I used the regular limes, but everything else was the same. I even made the topping for it, the first time I have ever made a topping. I was so proud of myself. I will make again. Made for Photo Tag.
