Reviewed key lime pie

Jul 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

The crust required an extra 1 - 1.5 tablespoon of butter to be packable against the pie shell. 20 minutes was way too long of a bake for the crust. Reduce it to 10-12 minutes. Far too much filling made for a 9" pie and the cooking time for the pie filling is 5 to 10 minutes too short. Yea, other than that it was perfect! :p

Too much olive oil muddled the flavors. I used lemon zest and juice from half a lemon to brighten it up. I recommend toasting the nuts to give some more depth to the flavor. The garlic level was just right. Perfect ratings should be reserved for recipes you don't have to change to make perfect."
