  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • graham cracker pie shell
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks, egg whites

Instructions

  1. Beat egg yolks until light. Add condensed milk and 1/2 cup lime juice. Stir until thickened. Pour into pie crust. Make meringue with egg whites. While beating egg whites, add sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Add a few drops of lime juice or cream of tartar. Cover pie with meringue* and bake 350 degrees until brown.
