    The crust recipe is pretty good, however, the key lime part is much too tart.

    My comment has nothing to do with taste but with a pet peeve. The phone appears to show that green food coloring has been added. Key lime juice is NOT green.

    Because of what Greenish813 said, I went and looked at the recipe for Lemon bars. That recipe only uses 1/2 cup of lemon juice. So - when I made this recipe, I cut the lime juice down from the 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup like the lemon bars. I also added the 3/4 teaspoon vanilla as in the lemon bars. These came out fantastic. The lime was not to tart nor too sweet. Surprising what 1/4 cup less juice can do.
