Why won't my Key Lime Pie Set?

Mila | May 17, 200603:28 PM     24

Inspired by the message just below, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of why mine didn't work. I tried baking it for 10 -15 minutes and still didn't set.

Are there tips or tricks?

Thanks

Here's the recipe:

3 x 7 oz tins condensed milk
12 oz pasteurized egg yolks (about 12 yolks)
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp lime zest

FILLING: Whisk together all ingredients until smooth and pour into baked pie shell. Chill for at least 4 hours before slicing.
