American Key Lime Pie

How to make American Key Lime Pie Recipe - It was the inspiration for Key-Lime Pie, making a sweet and creamy filling out of the very tart juice.

Makes 1 (9-inch) pie, 6 to 8 servings

1 (9-inch) baked Basic Foolproof Lard Crust or Graham-Cracker Crust,
3 eggs, separated
1 (12-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup key-lime juice or fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
6 tablespoons sugar

Prepare and bake pie crust. Preheat oven to 425F (220C).

In a medium-sized bowl, beat egg yolks and condensed milk. Beat in lime juice until smooth and blended. Pour mixture into baked pie crust. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until frothy.

Add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating until mixture forms stiff peaks. Spoon meringue over filling, sealing to edge of crust to prevent shrinking and weeping.

Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool before serving. Do not refrigerate but serve at room temperature.
