  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the wafer crumbs with the butter and sugar and press down into the bottom of a pie pan. Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the crust is just starting to brown. Let cool.
  • Put the eggs into a small mixing bowl and beat until they are thick and pale yellow. Stir the eggs into the condensed milk.
  • Add the lime juice and rind and pour over the crust. Set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until the whites begin to thicken. Slowly add the sugar and continue to beat until you get stiff peaks.
  • Spread the egg whites gently over the lime filling.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the meringue begins to brown.
