Key lime pie is a perennial favorite and it's easy to make. The secret to the best tasting pie is to use fresh lime juice, not the stuff that comes in the plastic bottle, and fresh lime peel. Classic key lime pie is made with key limes. They're smaller and rounder than common Persian limes and have a smooth, yellow green skin. Look for them in the produce isles. They're small so you'll need quite a few to make enough juice for a pie. You can also use juice from fresh Persian limes and get equally delicious results.
