Made this yummy pie for the second time and everyone loved it again!!! So proud of the mile high meringue. Easy to make but allow plenty of time because of the cooling times in between each step. Enjoy!

I made this for Easter dinner dessert, and it was quite a hit. Several people who said they didn't care for Key Lime pie, liked this one! The filling is luscious--just the right amount of tartness and the meringue is impressive. I made it the night before, and it held up beautifully. The crust is good too--liked the addition of cinnamon. Be sure to use a bigger pie plate as directed as it is a generous-sized pie.

It was delicious!! I can't get Key Limes where I live, so I used (3) reg. Limes and (1) Lemon as a substitute. Good Flavor too! Since I used a deep-10 in. pie pan, I almost doubled the crust recipe, but left out the cinnamon in the crust as I don't care for the taste. Also used (6) whites for the meringue and it was beautiful. I did not have to increase the filling though, as it worked great for my size pan. This was really a good dessert!!! I served BBQ Ribs for the meal, so this citrus dessert was perfect! Lots of compliments.
