This was my recipe:

9 inch graham cracker crust
3 cups sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup key lime juice
1 Tbs grated lime zest

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Combine all ingredients, stir and pour into pie shell. Bake 5 to 8 minutes, Do not Brown.

3. Chill thoroughly before serving.

It turned out really good.  Not tooth-achingly sweet.  Made the standard graham cracker crust.

The recipe I used was very close to yours.  I had that one bookmarked in my favorites.  Very easy recipe and very good!

Jean the Key Lime pies you get in FL. are always superior to those everywhere else. Something in the soil or the water makes the limes really special. I can still taste in my head, the ones my aunt who lived in Key West used to make. I was 10 years old at the time.

Alina,

When I had this recipe in my hand I saw two bags of key limes at Wegmans.  A reviewer said it would take about 20 limes to get 3/4 cup of juice.  I opted for a bottle of Nellie and Joe's Famous Key Lime Juice instead of buying the two bags of limes.
