Pie Filling

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and egg yolks until smooth.
  • Pour the batter over the crust.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. It should look somewhat set, but still have a wobble to it.
  • Remove from the oven and cool fully. Then cover the top and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
  • Top with whipped cream, lime zest and lime wedges.


Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
