Preheat Oven to 425*F. Line your 9" pie plate with your dough being sure to prick it all over. Bake for 6 minutes check if needed bake an additional 4 more minutes, until just beginning to brown. Remove pie shell from oven. Reduce temperature to 350*F.
2
In a bowl beat large egg yolks with whisk, mix them well. Slowly stir in borden's sweetened condensed milk. Mixing well stir in lime juice & grated rind. The filling SHOULD be tart, if its NOT tart enough add more juice! Pour filling into lightly browned pie shell. Bake at 350*F 12-15 minutes. Remove from Oven and cool.

Whip your whipping cream slowly adding the confectioners sugar, whip until still, you can add as much confectioners sugar as needed for your taste, not too much!!
