1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
3 cups sweetened condensed milk (2 cans)
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup key lime juice
2 tablespoon grated lime zest
1/4 cup lemon curd (I use Dickinson’s Lemon Curd)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind. Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust. Swirl in slightly heated curd
Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. DO NOT BROWN! Remove from oven when complete.
While your pie is baking, mix the following meringue:
4 egg whites
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. In separate bowl mix sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add sugar mixture a little at a time to the egg whites, beating between additions.
Spoon the meringue over pie. Bake for Spoon into pie you’ve just removed from oven and lightly sprinkle another tablespoon of sugar because that will give you that caramelized look when you broil it.
Place back in oven and cook for another 5 minutes. Then put it on low broil for last 3-4 minutes for the browning effect.
May be eaten hot, or chilled. I prefer it chilled, especially in the summer.
