1 (1/4 cups) graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk

1 cup fresh Key lime juice*

2 egg whites

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar



Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and margarine. Press into a 9-inch pie plate.

Bake pie crust at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned; cool.

Meringue & Filling

Stir together sweetened condensed milk and lime juice until blended. Pour into prepared crust. Set aside.

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer just until foamy.

Add granulated sugar gradually, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes).

Spread meringue over filling.

Bake at 325° for 25 to 28 minutes. Chill for 8 hours and enjoy!

*Bottled Key lime juice may be substituted for fresh juice.

Listen to this song as you bake for maximum delight. It's precisely what Key Lime Pie is, paradise. This song also relates to Jennie's desires to get away in the legend.
