This is the best

This is the best key lime pie! I make it for friends and family and everyone loves it. I use bottled juice ("Nellie & Joe's" brand) and zest from regular limes. The almonds in the crust really make it special! I don't change a thing. It's so easy that I'm actually embarrassed when asked for the recipe. Paula, thank you for a perfect pie.
