Why does this show a green lime? Key limes are yellow and round. Persian limes are green.

The 2 Tbsp sugar goes with the crust ingredients. 3/4 cup sugar goes with the cream cheese. The sour cream and 3 Tbsp go together. The order of the ingredients is a little wacky.

Mexrick, I think if you reread instructions you will find all ingredients included. Sugar in #4 of instruction list, and lime rind in #2 of instructions.

I need some help here. The ingredients list and the written directions don't equate! I checked off the list of ingredients with the directions and came up with 2 Tbs. of sugar and 1 Tbs. of grated lime rind that aren't included in the written instructions. I hate it when this happens!
