I used 16oz. of heavy whipping cream in place of the egg white. I mixed half the whipped cream into the pie and put the other half on top of the pie...delicious!!

This is an excellent key lime pie, and I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to having it again! I frosted it with Whip Cream Frosting (from allrecipes too) and garnished with fresh lime sl...

It was alright, I recommend using real ingredients rather than the pudding for a quality pie.
