Traditional Flour Pie Crust Versus Graham Cracker Pie Crust
While I show this pie with a graham cracker crust, you could certainly make this with a traditional pie crust too. Here is my traditional pie crust recipe. You can certainly use a traditional pie crust; however, our family prefers the buttery flavor of the graham cracker crust with this key lime pie. To us, it just tastes great together.
While it is nice to be able to use key limes for this pie, if you are not able to find them, by all means, you can use bottled key lime juice to make this recipe. You would not have the lime to zest of course; however, you will still have a very tasty and successful pie that is a crowd pleaser.
Doesn’t this Key Lime Pie look yummy?
