Number of Servings: 8


    1 graham cracker crust
    4 eggs, seperated
    1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
    1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    Pinch of salt
    Pinch of Cream of Tartar
    1/4 cup of confectioner's sugar


Prebake the crust, and start the filling while the crust is in the oven. When the crust is done, leave the over at 350 degrees F and cool the crust slightly on a rack.

Beat the egg yolks just until combined. Beat in the condensed milk, then the lime juice, a little at a time; the mixture will thinken. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet. Pour the filling into the warm crust and bake until the filling is just firm, 10-15 minutes. Remove and cool on a rack for about 10 minues.

Make the Merinuge: Beat the egg whites with salt and cream of tartar, until foamy. Keep beating gradually adding the confectioner's sugar, until the mixture is shiny and hold fairly stiff peaks.

Cover the pie with the meringue, making sure the meringue comes in contact with the edges of the crust. Note that the meringue will hold its shape, so you can decorate it if you like. Bake until the meringue is lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Cool on a rack, then refrigerate; serve cool.
