Top with whipped cream and serve
I like a tart pie with sweet topping, if you want a more mellow flavor try 1/2 or 1/3 cup of juice
When serving, top with whipped cream. Making your own is as simple as adding confectioners sugar to heavy cream until its as sweet as you want then beating until it's whipped cream... Store bought works fine too.
Squeezing Key limes to get enough juice is a hassle that doesn't translate into substantially better flavor. i suggest using the limes for zest and buying the actual juice in a bottle.
The same could be said for the crust, store bought tastes almost as good
Enjoy!... Or don't. Let me know in the comments.
