    This pie was excellent! Much like another Southern Living recipe for a key lime pie from years ago that is a favorite, but much easier to make! Everyone (kids included) loved it!

    As a professional caterer, I am always trying new recipes out on my family, neighbors, + friends...I made this recipe this week. Everyone (including my guests) told me NOT to ever make it again. Except for my delicious, flaky pie crust, nothing else was eaten in total. It was gritty, lacking in taste, + lacked that chess pie texture we love. I will go back to my great grandmother's tried and true one. Do not waste your time with this one.

    I loved this pie. It isn't close to the same recipe I made, as a child, but I am sure it will be more kind to my 30+ body!This has more of the texture of lemon meringue than pecan pie (which is the texture I remember from chess pie).
