“A delicious combination of a lemon meringue pie and a key lime pie. Easy to make too. Garnish individual servings with lime slices and a sprig of mint.”

Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk until well blended. Gradually whisk in the lime juice. Pour into the graham cracker crust.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is set when the pie is gently shaken. Set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. In a large clean bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually sift in the confectioners' sugar, while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. Spoon on top of the slightly cooled pie, sealing the meringue to the edges of the crust.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the meringue is lightly toasted. Cool to room temperature before refrigerating. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

Great recipe! I added some green food colouring so it looked different than lemon meringue.

I made just the meringue from this recipe to go on "Easy Key Lime Pie I" from this site. It called for 5 egg whites, so it was perfect. I think it called for a bit too much sugar- I would use only 1/2 cup next time. But it was easy to whip up and tasted great on the pie. I'll try using the rest of this recipe next time.

I also just made the meringue it was fantastic and super simple. Update 2/20 I just made this again but just the pie part, i only used 4 egg yolks and 3/4 cup lime juice and 1/4 lemon juice, baked for 25 mins was absolutely fabulous! Thanks for the awesome recipe can't wait to make the meringue and pie together in the near future!
