This recipe made me homesick well the base did. In Australia we use "Golden Syrup which is a darker syrup than the Karo light. I find it gives the base more taste. You can also use the base recipe for GREAT Aussie Anzac (Australia New Zealand Army Corps) cookies. Just place a teaspoon of the mixture on a cookie tray 1 inch apart. They get their name because they were sent to the "diggers" soldiers in WW1. Read More

When they say don't brown they mean it! Also don't substitute key lime juice in the same proportion use 1/4 c instead or else you will have a VERY TART PIE which i did. Fortunately I had some fresh whipped cream to help cut the tartness. The crust is definitely unique and i am going to try the suggestion to make the cookies as well. Read More

I had to write in about this one -- it's truly outstanding. Unlike some others I find it too sweet for my tastebuds so I cut the sugar in the crust to 1/4 cup (or less). Also I've tried it with 2 whole eggs instead of 4 yolks. I separated the eggs beat the whites and folded them in before baking. Same taste - just a bit lighter. Finally why not use the lime zest since you're using the limes? Nevertheless however you tweak it a fabulous recipe. Read More

No fault of the recipe the lime juice I made was just too bitter as I juiced it (mistakenly) with the skin on. As a result I used another 1/2 cup of sugar. It was still rather bitter. The crust was unique and delicious and I know the filling would have been as well. I'll be making this again with bottled lime juice. Read More

Excellent!!!! I made this recipe twice in two weeks and everyone loves it. However one suggestion - I thought the baking soda flavor came through too strongly using the recipe so I halved it in the second pie and that was perfect. Also I never did get the "foamy" result of whipping/stirring the baking soda with the other ingredients listed. Works well with either lemon or lime zest. I think the flavor is best with some whipped topping (Cool Whip) on top. Try it the crust is excellent and the overall result is addicting.:) Read More

This wasn't bad but not what I was expecting even after reading all the reviews. As you can see from my photo the crust puffed up huge; by the time the thing was out of the oven it was more crust than filling. While the crust was tasty I think it would be better for cookies; once refrigerated overnight it was very difficult to cut. The filling was not bad at all maybe a little tart. I made it exactly as stated juicing 2-3 limes and straining them into the measuring cup and also happened to have lemon peel on hand. I added green food coloring because the yellow didn't look very appetizing. So the flavor wasn't bad overall it just looked funny with a huge crust with a little puddle of filling in the middle. Next time I'll use some of the crust dough to make a small pan of cookies for the kids and the adults can have the pie. Read More

First receipe I've tried from this website and started on a great note. Being Australian we're a big fan of Anzac bikkies and lime so this went down real well at my last BBQ. Thumbs up for this one. Read More
