A light, fluffy pie because the whipped egg whites are folded into the pie itself rather than used for a meringue topping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat yolks until thick. Gradually add sugar; beating constantly. Add lime rind and juice; mix well.
  2. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into lime mixture.
  3. Spoon mixture into shell. Bake at 325°F for 25 minutes.
  4. Cool to room temperature and chill for 3 hours. Top with whipped cream.

A really yummy pie, Marg! It was my first attempt at making key lime pie and it was delicious. Our dinner guests thought so too! It was way easier than I thought it would be.
