    Delicious! The crust was yummy with the white chocolate. Only problem was the serving size. Too good just to have a sliver, had to have 2 slivers!

    The crust was by far the best version of "lightened" graham cracker crust I've tried (and I have tried a few pretty unsuccessful versions). The pie, according to my husband, was "a little tart," and I think he was referring more to the taste of the yogurt than that of the limes. I liked it a lot, but I see what he means; it left a little aftertaste of greek yogurt. If you love yogurt, it probably won't bother you a bit.

    Served this to 5 people and we ALL agreed that it was wonderful!

    Great recipe. A lot of flavor and could not tell it from the "real" thing. Only complaint, as such, was that it took a while to juice enough key limes to get enough for the pie - the ones locally available are about an inch or less in diameter.

    I made this for Father's Day and it was a HUGE hit! Creamy, sweet, tart, crunchy - everything a key lime pie should be. No more searching for the "right" recipe. This one is it!

    Very, very good! Everyone loved it. I liked the crust especially and will be using it as my go-to graham cracker crust.

    This turned out a bit tart, but it was pretty tasty nonetheless. I used generic brand white chocolate chips for in the crust and chopped them up. I used the full fat version of the sweetened condensed milk, and regular limes because I couldn't find key limes. I had to bake the pie about 12 minutes longer than it called for.

    Loved this pie. Suggest refrigerating it for much more than 2 hours. It was very hard to slice because it was "runny", but when the leftovers were refrigerated overnight, it sliced very easily. Also, watch the crust when doing the initial baking; it becomes brown very quickly. I had to throw out my first crust.

    Fabulous recipe. The chocolate in the crust made a delicious substitute for butter, only the crust was very crumbly the first day. After it sat a day or two in the fridge, the moisture from the pie helped the crust hold together better. Made as directed - used regular limes. Found I didn't even need the whipped topping!! Will make this often!!

    Cooked the pie an extra 15 minutes and was barely set up. Don't know what happened as I've made many key lime pies with recipes on the bottles of lime juice!

    This recipe was terrific. I was thoroughly surprised that the white chocolate made the crust so good. Has anyone tried this recipe with lemons instead of limes? Let us know.

    OH WOW. This was just amazing. It's my husband's favorite pie, and we've made tons of different recipes, never finding a pie that fit the bill. We won't need to search anymore. The crust, the filling, all perfect. And it was simple! The traditional recipes I have take so long to make, and always fall short. Love! My favorite CL recipe so far (and I've been a subscriber for 7 years).

    The best pie I have ever tasted!! So light and very easy

    I couldn't find 2% plain flavored greek yogurt so I used fat-free and it still turned out excellent!

    This pie was wonderful! The crust had a really nice texture and flavor, I think I'd consider adding a little white choc to any graham crust in the future. It was a pain to juice so many key limes to get the required juice, but it was worth it. The pie was nice and zingy with a strong lime flavor, but also balanced with the right amount of sweetness. The only substitution I made was using regular sweetened condensed milk (not fat free), since I had it on hand. One note, it took a little longer to set than the recipe called for (about 18 minutes). My friends loved it as well!

    Excellent Key Lime Pie and very easy and quick. I used reduced sugar whole wheat graham crackers and the flavor and texture of the crust were far superior to store-bought crusts. I'm not sure I could taste the white chocolate but I did love the end product. Use a food processor to make the crumbs and to chop the white chocolate chips -- it works much better than chopping and gets the grind even. I also used redi-whip instead of cool-whip -- have just never liked that stuff. The pie is also excellent on its own.

    This pie was awesome. Barely could tell that it was light and the crust is soooo good. My husband HATES yogurt and when he saw it in the mixing bowl, he thought it was sour cream. He wants me to make it again soon! The only issue I had was getting it out of the pie dish, it didn't come out in a nice shape so next time I will spray it w Pam a little heavier.

    Fantastic recipe. The crust is unbelievable! I will use this recipe as my "go to" for crust from now on. I used fat free Greek yogurt ( that's all I use) and didn't miss a thing. Make this...you won't be disappointed!

  • mandyanne Posted: 08/11/13

    Sooo good. Seriously. I couldn't tell it was light at all. I fed three adult men and they had no idea it was a lighter version! Perfect!

    Fantastic! The white chocolate in the crust was a nice addition, and the filling was perfect. My husband doesn't usually like key lime pie, but he had 2 pieces of this.

  • contentedgirl Posted: 08/17/13

    Absolutely LOVED this Key Lime Pie! I've used another recipe for Key Lime Pie for years, which I thought was good, but it wasn't light. This is my new favorite Key Lime Pie recipe that I will make from now on. I love the white chocolate in the crust - great flavor addition! Definitely can't tell that this is a lightened version. Next time I will use fat free Greek yogurt as has been suggested since that is what I always have on hand. I used fat free Redi Whip as I really don't care for Fat Free Cool Whip. Also, I didn't go to the trouble of juicing the little Key limes since I had a bottle of the Key West Key Lime juice on hand. Tasted great!

  • KTDETTLE Posted: 06/26/13

    Very easy and delicious. I made two because one wasn't enough! I noticed that just a bit too much more lime juice (which I put in one of the pies) caused it to be more soft and not set as well. So, don't try to add that little bit of juice you had left over from squeezing the limes, because it won't set for hours.
