Sounds really good and easy!
What size bottle of lime juice do you use?
sorry, that should say 'bottled' lime juice...not 1/2 c bottle lime juice

It's 1/2 cup of bottled lime juice

we make this with Nellie and Joe's key lime juice. It is sooooo good! Tart and tangy! Yum
I think that's the stuff I used too. I asked Dave to get lime juice at the store, but I was picturing the cheap stuff like the Real Lemon in a bottle.

I made the pie (so easy and fast). Not much to look at right now. Maybe I'll post a picture when I get either Cool Whip or meringue on top...right now it just looks like vanilla pudding in a graham cracker crust :laugh:

This looks doable for me! :) YUM!

How big is your bottle of lime juice though?
Duh I just realized I asked the wrong question ROFL! Doesn't matter how big the bottle of lime juice is....I meant to ask about the condensed milk - does it only come in one size? OR am I thinking of evaporated milk that has two sizes?
