During the holidays, a family friend brought up a key lime pie from FL. I live in MD and am trying to find a place that sells a great pie that will ship. The one I had had graham cracker crust and was topped with a light cream, and would like one similar...but will appreciate any advice on a place that makes the best ones that will ship... Thanks from MD

    This is one of the better ones from Key West. The pie is delicious!

    They are also very easy to make. Use Nellie and Joes juice and recipe. Its fairly easy to find the juice. I see it in Publix stores all the time.

      thanks so much... I saw Nellie and Joe's website and will try making it myself but saw different recipes for the key lime pie. Which one is better?

        Nellie & Joe's Recipes from the Keys
        Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Pie
        9" graham cracker pie crust
        14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
        3 egg yolks (whites not used)
        ½ cup Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice
        Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust and bake at 350º for 15 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving, top with freshly whipped cream, or meringue, and garnish with lime slices.

      I love Randy's Key Lime pies in Naples, Fla - they ship too.

        Mike's Pies in Tampa ships pies. I believe most of their pies are for restaurants now, but they do ship them still.

          I second this suggestion. Mike's Pies are fantastic. For those that are local, you can buy them at Sweet Bay Supermarkets.

          bob Roth's New River Groves ships Terry's Key Lime pies and they are fabulous...if not cheap.

            But the pie is so easy to make at home. Why bother with ordering one and paying shipping. I can think of few foods less worthy of being ordered and shipped. A great smoked ham, OK. But a KLP? Just get a couple of cans of condensed milk and some graham crackers and have at it. Even Cooks Illustrated claimed that Persian limes make a better KLP than key limes, and Persian limes are available anywhere.

              Does this pie freeze ok? I have my doubts about that.
