(14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
cup key lime juice
to 3 drops green food coloring (optional)
(9-inch) unbaked pie crust
teaspoon cream of tartar
1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
2. In medium bowl, beat egg yolks; gradually beat in EAGLE BRAND® and lime juice. Stir in food coloring (optional). Pour into pie crust. Bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to 350°F.
3. In large bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar on medium speed, 1 tablespoon at a time; beat 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and stiff glossy peaks form.
4. Immediately spread meringue over hot pie, carefully sealing to edge of crust to prevent meringue from shrinking. Bake 15 minutes. Cool 1 hour. Chill at least 3 hours. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
