This is just one of over 9,000 recipes we've collected since early 1996. Many of these recipes have been passed down from family member to family member and then shared with friends and then, with SecretRecipes.com. When it comes to recipes, the real secret is that all of our recipes always have been, and always will be free!
- Separate egg yolks from whites; set whites aside for meringue.
- In a bowl beat yolks well with a fork or whisk. Gradually stir in sweetened condensed milk and lime peel. Add lime juice, water, and, if desired, food coloring; mix well. (Mixture will thicken.) Spoon into pastry shell. Bake in a 325° F oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to 350° F.
- Meanwhile, for meringue, in a mixing bowl combine egg whites, vanilla extract and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed about 4 minutes more or until mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks and sugar dissolves. Immediately spread meringue over hot pie filling; seal to edge of pastry. Bake in a 350° F oven for 15 minutes; cool 1 hour. Chill to store.
