This recipe was obviously a version of Key Lime pie, but I never use key limes to make it. Instead, I use Persian limes from my tree in the backyard. So a co-worker dubbed it “Schwarz Lime Pie” and it stuck. I cooked with key limes once. They are a complete pain to work with. Also, notice the light color of this pie with green flecks of zest – this is how it should be. If the custard is actually green, food coloring was added. This is my favorite recipe for a lime pie because it is not overly sweet and it is very easy to make!
