Recipe Comments & Reviews

The best lime pie that I have tried so far.
I made this pie for a pie social two months ago and the ones who tried it are still raving about it, asking for me to make it again. It is easy to make and a food processer makes the crust quick and easy to prepare. Instead of coconut I used zest shreds.
