Key West Key Lime Pie
Ingredients for pie filling:
4 egg yolks
1 can of condensed milk
1/2 C. lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat the 4 egg yolks together. Add your condensed milk and lime juice. Beat the mixture until it becomes thick and then pour it into a baked pie shell.

Ingredients for pie topping:
4 egg whites
6 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Beat egg whites and then blend in sugar and cream of tartar. Beat the mixture until it is stiff and peaks form. Place on top of pie filling and bake until top is golden brown. (roughly 25 minutes)

****When you are separating the egg yolk from the egg white make neither gets into the other. The pie filling will not be affected so much but if there is any egg yolk in the egg whites the topping will not form correctly. The easiest way is to break egg in half and sift back and forth between the shells until the yolk falls off. Or you can use a strainer****
