Chiffon pies are light, airy pies that have fillings with a mousse-like consistency. They are, in fact, made much like a mousse and get most of their volume from beaten egg whites or whipped cream.

Lime and vanilla really is a fantastic flavor combination, although it’s not necessarily the first one you might think of when it comes to desserts.
