  • 1 9-inch graham cracker crust

  2. Refrigerate for several hours until firm

I made this! It was really easy and it was a big hit. If I can make it, anyone can. :)

(Me, who didn't know how to handle the starch-froth while boiling pasta, so I would madly keep scraping the starch-froth out while the pasta was cooking, all the while ignoring that niggling little voice in the back of my head that was saying, "I don't remember Mom doing this..." It took jcobleigh, years before we were dating, to notice this odd behavior one afternoon and correct it: "What are you doing?!" he asked. "Just turn the heat down!")

Is it a very tart sort of key lime pie? Or more like lemon meringue made with lime, so to speak?

Seems like key lime pie, but I doubt it would be very tart, with the cup of condensed milk. I have to try this, always on the lookout for recipes for people with superficial cooking skills. :-)

It is not very tart. It's basically very light, just tart enough that it's interesting, and just sweet enough that the tart isn't too much.

We have a similar recipe at home for a low-fat no-bake key lime pie. It does not come out too tart.

And to reveilles, if you think you were all thumbs in the kitchen...at least you rememebered to put water in the pasta pot. I have a friend who forgot that the first time he cooked - and we really have not let him forget it since. :)
