  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter. Press into 9 inch pie plate and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • If using fresh fruit, squeeze into a measuring cup to get 1/4 cup of juice from each.
  • Separate 2 of the eggs, placing the two egg whites into a mixing bowl. Reserve the yolks in another bowl. To the yolks, add one whole egg, 1/2 cup juice and sweetened condensed milk. Mix well.
  • With clean mixer blades, beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry, adding cream of tartar after about 20 seconds. Fold whites into filling mixture. Pour filling into partially baked crust.
  • Bake in preheated 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until set. Let cool at room temperature, then freeze 4 hours to overnight.
  • Right before serving, whip cream to form stiff peaks. Serve decorated with whipped cream and lime slices.
