My family loves this one:
1 can sweetened condenced milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup lime juice (about 3 or 4 limes)
Beat 1 of the egg whites stiff. Fold into above mixture. Beat remaining 3 egg whites and gradually add 6 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 tsp cream of tartar. Put filling into baked pie shell ( or graham crust) and then top with meringue mixture. Bake at 350 until whites are golden brown.
