For some reason, I feel like pies are a difficult thing to make. They are just the opposite. All you need is a mix and a crust, and you can buy the latter at any grocery store. So why not take 20 minutes to make the official pie of summer straight from the Florida coast?


  • 4 eggs with yolks and whites separated into two different bowls
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 tbsps white sugar
  • 1 premade pie crust
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Stir egg yolks, lime juice, and condensed milk together until fully incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake for 10-15 minutes
  4. Meanwhile, use a mixer to beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, and sugar together into a meringue. It will take a while. You will know its finished once the meringue forms stiff peaks.
  5. Remove the pie from the oven and top with the meringue. Put it back into the oven and let bake until the meringue starts to brown.
  6. Refrigerate and eat cold.
