As written, a four star recipe--with the modifications I made, five star. First, I thought this pie deserved a homemade graham cracker crust, which I baked first, then cooled. Thinking this would be a little too eggy with 5 yolks, I used only four--perfect. I also knew the custard could stand a little more tartness, so I added 1-1/2 tsp. of grated lime zest to the filling. Perfect. I baked it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then when cooled, topped the pie with 1 cup of sweetened whipped cream. Light and refreshing citrus-y pie, and the perfect complement to a spicy Mexican meal.
