Combine milk and lime juice well, drop in yolks one at a time until completely blended (if you want the pie green, drop in several drops 3-4 of green food coloring)

Pour mixture into cooled crust and place back in oven for 10-12 minutes; slight bubbles will appear on the top of pie

Let pie stand for 10 minutes then refrigerate for a few hours before serving


Whip heavy cream, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and gradually add confectioners’ sugar not too much, it shouldn’t be too sweet. Do not over beat cream or it will turn to butter; stop mixer frequently to judge the consistency. Soft peaks should appear


Place a dollop of cream in the center, lightly grate some lime peel & a small slice of lime. Serve with cream on the side
