Key Lime Pie is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. He enjoys the tartness of the lime. I on the hand don’t like it so much, but i would have a tiny piece.
I had all these limes that were starting to go bad so I decided to my my hubby a Key Lime Pie. This is a really good recipe and easy to put together.
Creamy, tart and per my hubby, Delicious!
The crust came out really good.. I’m glad I made it..Enjoy!!
