ingredients


PIE CRUST

1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar

FILLING

1/2 cup Key lime juice, fresh
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
4 egg yolks, beaten

TOPPING

4 egg whites
1 lime, thinly sliced

directions

CRUST: Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Add softened margarine to mixture and blend well.

Press mixture on the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie pan. Shell can be easily formed by sandwiching the mixture between 2-9" pans (grease the upper pan so that it will release easily). Bake for 5-8 minutes in an preheated 325 degrees F oven. Remove and let cool.

FILLING: Use a mixer at low speed to blend the condensed milk and egg yolks. Slowly add the lime juice. Mix until it thickens. Pour into the cooled crust and refrigerate overnight.

TOPPING: Whip egg whites at high speed until meringue consistency Cover pie, add lime slices and return to refrigerator for another hour. Serve chilled.
