Re: Recipe for key lime pie?

Sour cream has its place, but I don't really understand what it brings to a Key Lime pie. Lagasse has forgotten more about cooking than I'll ever know, but in this case, I think his unique culinary background and desire to do something different is getting in the way of an otherwise good pie.

This is pretty much my favorite pie. It's incredibly easy to make (aside from perhaps the crust). Below ...
