Key Lime Pie Parfaits

    I've made this for my family twice, and we all agree that the flavor is fantastic but the texture of the custard is way too thin. Don't know why the recipe says to serve the custard warm. Even when I cooled it, though, it was still too runny. Also, the whipped cream is a little difficult to measure out when it is coming out of a spray can. The flavor of this dish is just to-die for. Too bad we are "texture" people. I'm not sure if I will make this again. Maybe I'll try the cornstarch trick of other reviewers - the third time's a charm?

    I've made this twice and both times the filling was runny. It does taste good. I make a key lime pie with similar ingredients but it calls for 2 yolks so I may try it that way and see if it firms up.
