This is a wonderful, tart Key Lime Pie that kindled memories of Key West! This traditional recipe wins kudos hands down over sweeter ones that are often like lime cheesecake. I used just one 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk with about 1/2 c. half-and-half for richer flavor and body. After all, the chill time is crucial for the juice to essentially curdle the milk and thicken the pie. I departed from tradition by baking my pie for 15-20 mi. at 350 due to concerns about raw eggs. The flavor was awesome -- sweet enough and pleasingly tart. Thanks for posting!!
