2 large eggs
2 tbsp. grated lime zest
dash of salt

8 oz. sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt

Preheat to 350.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk all filling ingredients together until completely mixed. Pour into pie shell.
Bake on the center rack until the pie begins to set, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and reset the heat to 425.

Whisk the topping ingredients together then spread over pie.

Bake pie 5 minutes. The topping will be loose when removed from the oven, but it will set as it cools. Cool on a rack then chill for 6 hours before serving.

Garnish pie with lime zest.
