Frozen Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie is so popular.  Sweet and tangy flavors mingle together for a unique flavor.  If you do not have Key Limes available, you can use regular fresh limes instead.  A fellow viewer sent this in.

Frozen Key Lime Pie

This pie is very good!


  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 3 single Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 cup fresh Key Lime Juice
  • 1 single Pie shell; baked
  • 3 single Egg Whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons Superfine sugar


Beat first three ingredients together until thick and smooth. Pour mixture in pie shell. Make meringue and spread over pie filling. Bake to brown, and then chill before serving. A key lime pie that is green is not a key lime pie. The Florida Cracker purist insists on the yellow pie made from true key limes. The trick is to squeeze them while they're in season, freeze the juice in ice cube trays, store them in freezer bags, and you'll have Key Lime Pie all year round.
