  • 1 9 inch baked pastry shell, cooled

  • Green food coloring optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/3 cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Pie Filling

  • Separate the 4 whites and yolks, keeping one egg white separated from the others
  • Stir in your sweetened condenced milk and lime juice
  • Add a hint of green food coloring if you want a greener lime-ier-looking pie
  • In small bowl, beat the previously saved egg white until stiff
  • Fold it into the sweetened condensed milk mixture
  • Pour mixture into previously baked pie shell

Meringue Topping

  • Beat remaining three egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy
  • Gradually add sugar, beating egg whites into a meringue that's stiff, but not dry
  • Spread meringue over top of pie, sealing the edges of the shell
  • Bake at 350ยบ for approximately 15 minutes or until meringue is lightly brown.
