It's almost April 1st and you know what that means? Pranks will be played on unsuspecting people all over. My poor hubby gets the prank played on him when I offer this moldy key lime pie. There's nothing moldy about it, I just tinted the green to a swamp green color. I was going to do the meringue as well, but figured he would pass on this for sure. So go forth and prank someone just be nice about it!
I used a premade crust I had, but still included the crust directions below in case you wanted to make your own.
Beat egg whites and cream of tarter at high speed with an electric mixer just until foamy. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes).
Spread meringue over filling. Bake at 325 degrees F. for 25 to 28 minutes. Chill 8 hours. Garnish, if desired.
