Tip

With the lime juice it can be a bit of guesswork. Only you can determine how strong you would like the flavour. If you prefer a milder flavour use no rind or less juice and flesh. 

Watch it in the oven it can brown easily. 

Can serve it on it's own, or with cream or extra lime slices on top

You can also use lemon instead of lime for a different flavour.

    Good recipe, I used 170ml lime juice (4 limes). Found crumb to be too crumbly, so will add a little more butter next time. It was difficult to build up the biscuit crumb sides. Base nicely softened 24 hrs later which I much preferred. Will definitely make again.

    Delicious, added 7 limes which were given to me but would add a couple lemons next time to get that tangy flavour and reduce the limes. Have put in my favourites file. Thanks

    Made this today without the cream, as I didn't have any, but needed to use the limes I had. Turned out beautifully as the eggs set the mixture anyway. Also used the rind and juice of 6 limes and used sugar reduced condensed milk. Lovely and tart and not too sweet.

    Submitted by Lisa143 on 22. April 2015 - 21:58.

    I made this pie today and the flavour was lovely  tmrc_emoticons.). However I only had a packet (250g)  of Butter nut snaps biscuits which gave the base a lovely nutty flavour but I should have halved the butter as was too buttery.

    Infsct the buttrr was running out from the pie tin So The base remained a little soggy. 

    I also needed to use 4 limes and 2 lemons to get the sharp lemony taste I like.  

    Will definatrly make Again using granita biscuits.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by cookingwizard on 2. February 2015 - 13:27.

    Very lovely recipe.  I had unusually large green limes, (size of a large lemon), that I purchased from my grocery store. I used two of the large limes which had a good amount of juice.  It was perfect, with a stong taste of limes.  Can't wait to make it again. Felt like I was back in Key West eating Key Lime Pie. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Very nice recipe, enjoyed by all! Next time I would keep the butter for the base the same, but add the whoel 250g packet of biscuits as I needed a bit more to make it up the sides all the way round.

    Yummy yummy yummy yummy! Excellent recipe & very easy. Mine cooked on the outside in about 20 minutes, it started to brown, so I turned oven off and took about a further 15 minutes in hot oven to cook through to the centre. Delicious!
