I always want to make this pie after seeing many bloggers making it. We couldn't get any key lime in Australia so I am using the green lime we have. When I made this pie, my son just declared that he would not eat it because lime is not his usual diet. My teenage boy always give me harsh comment these days. However, after taking a piece, he came back for a bigger piece and this had become one of his favourite dessert.
It really is a very easy dessert and now I understand why it's so popular!
