Key Lime Pie is a mouth watering dessert recipe. An easy to prepare pie recipe; I bet, it wont let you forget its taste forever. So, give it a try and squander its taste!
Ingredients
  Baked pastry shell 1 , baked fully (9 Inch)
  Egg yolks 5
  Sweetened condensed milk 14 Ounce (1 Can)
  Fresh lime juice 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Egg whites 3
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs), whipped
Directions

Preheat the oven to 325°.
With a wire whisk or rotary beater or electric mixer, beat the yolks of 5 eggs for 3 to 5 minutes until they are thick.
Slowly beat in the condensed milk and then the lime juice.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks and waver gently on the beater when it is lifted out of the bowl.
Be careful not to overbeat; the whites should not be stiff.
With a rubber spatula, fold them gently but thoroughly into the egg yolk mixture.
Spoon the mixture at once into the cooled pie shell.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes, or until the filling is firm.
