Well it definitely has great lime flavor and comes together really easily and quick. I used a regular frozen crust from the store and I loved it. The only very frustrating part was the meringue. I have never had luck with meringues though, and would probably skip it next time- too difficult. A good whipped cream would do fine. Overall, good to try and fun to enjoy with a good cup of coffee and friends. Will make again some day.

This recipe was good, however-- you must be VERY careful with the crust-- it is very thin- so make sure there are no holes and because of how thin it is-- it burns very easily in the pre-baking-- keep you eye on it! Otherwise, a good recipe.

my family and I loved this recipe! it was a little time consuming because of the many steps, but it was pretty straight-forward. the only complaint i had was that i had trouble making the crust big enough so made use a ready made crust instead. it still tasted good though! I will definately make this again.

This has become one of my husband's and my favorite desserts. I've made it 3 times in the past 2 weeks! It has a great tart lime flavor and creamy texture. The crust came out really well. It's a bit small in size when you put it into the tart pan which I sprayed with a non-stick spray, but becomes soft enough that you can work it up onto the sides of the tart pan. I used raw egg whites for the merinque and they worked great. The first time the merinque shrank a bit from the crust edge but the second time I made sure I worked the merinque all the way up the sides of the tart to the crust's top edge and no shrinkage! It's great, it does not taste like a 'light' dessert!

This is perfect! I love key lime pie and this doesn't taste light at all. Only tricky part is the crust, but by the second time I made it no problem at all. Will make again and again.
