The flavor of this pie is very good and we all enjoyed. Key Lime Pie happens to be one of my daughter's favorite dessert and she gobbled a slice up. After baking the meringue, we had to place it in the freezer, because it wasn't holding up in the fridge, but otherwise, it was delicious. Thanks dienia for sharing. Made it for Pick Me Tag.
