    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you are looking for an everyday common key lime pie then this is not for you, the addition of beaten egg whites added to the filling is what makes this pie stand out from any other recipe! if you want a less fluffier pie then just use two egg whites instead of three. Prep time includes freezer time. This pie may also be served frozen just thaw slightly before slicing

      After living for several years in the Florida Keys, I have eaten some of the best Key Lime Pie there is - so I thought! A dear friend recently sent me a box of Key Limes that are calling to be used, and since they are a precious commodity, I wanted to use a recipe that I KNEW would be great! I wasn't disappointed! The only thing I didn't add was the food color. The flavor of the crust goes perfectly with this filling. The topping is delicious as well, but can easily be skipped with how delicious the filling is. This is a wonderful recipe Kitt! Thank you for another winner!

      OK, I used store bought graham cracker crust and skipped the whipped cream topping, but the real story here anyway is the filling. Oh, so smooth, light and tangy--what a great pie!
