  • For filling, in a medium bowl combine egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and lime zest. Whisk in lime juice until combined (mixture will thicken). Whisk in 1/2 cup of the cream and, if desired, the food coloring. Transfer filling to crust.

  • Bake 35 minutes or until filling reaches 160°F. Cool on a wire rack 1 hour. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.

  • Before serving, in a chilled bowl beat remaining 1 cup cream, the sugar, and vanilla with a mixer on medium to high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Spoon or pipe onto pie. If desired, top with additional lime.
