Ingredients
  • 18 sheets cinnamon graham crackers, broken up
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 14 -ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juic
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
Directions
  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven; preheat to 350 degrees F. Pulse the graham crackers in a food processor until crumbly. Slowly drizzle in the butter while pulsing until the crumbs are moist but still crumbly. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the side of an 8-inch springform pan using the bottom of a measuring cup, making sure the crust goes at least 1 inch up the side. Set aside.

  • Whisk together the egg yolks, condensed milk, lime and orange zests and juices in a medium bowl. Pour into the crust and bake until the pie sets, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the broiler. Whisk the egg whites in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium speed until foamy. Slowly add the sugar until the meringue turns glossy. Increase the speed and continue whisking until the meringue holds medium-soft peaks and is glossy but not dry. Top the pie decoratively with the meringue. Broil in the middle of the oven until the meringue begins browning on top, about 3 minutes. Serve warm or let cool to room temperature.
