Categories: Desserts / Pies & Pastries

3/8  c  Lime juice
3  tb  - Water hot
1/4  t  Salt
1  c  - Water
1    Lime or lemon rind grated
1    Eggs
1    Pie shell 9 inch

Beat the egg yolks, add the lime juice, grated rind, hot water, salt and 1/2 cup of sugar.Cook this mixture in a double boiler until it thickens. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar(or what is remainder) to the stiffly beaten egg whites. Fold into the cooked mixture and spoon into the pie shell. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. This pie can be garnished with whipping cream. Because of the danger of uncooked egg yolks this recipe is often as alternative to the older versions. Especially in the United States it is recommended that uncooked egg yolks should not be used under any circumstances.
