Directions:
Prepare crust. Preheat oven to 350 F. Put yolks in a large bowl and beat them with a whisk, just breaking them and mixing the well. Slowly stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Mixing well, stir in the lime juice. The filling should be tart; if it isn't pleasantly tangy, add more juice.

Pour the filling into the pie shell.

Bake at 350 F for 12 - 15 minutes. Remove and cool. Whip the cream, slowly adding the sugar.

Spread over the pie and sprinkle the lime zest over pie.

Serve at room temperature, but refrigerate if not serving within 3 hours.
