1 tablespoon Fresh lime juice
1 cup Sugar

Prepare plecrust: In a large bowl, combine flour, butter, shortening, and salt and blend until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the ice water and toss with a fork just until the water is incorporated.

Form the dough into a ball, flattening it somewhat. Dust lightly with flour. Cover in plastic wrap or waxed paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.

On a floured surface, roll half of the dough out into a ⅛-inch-thick circle. Fit dough into a 9-or 10-inch pie dish. Trim any excess dough and press edges with the back of a fork. Chill for 1 hour before using. Roll out excess dough ⅛ inch thick and cut into 1-inch-wide strips using a pastry cutter. Place strips on waxed paper, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before using.

Prepare filling: In a medium-size saucepan, heat mango puree and lime juice. Add sugar, flour, milk, salt, and nutmeg and cook mixture for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a medium-size bowl, beat egg yolks and fold into mango mixture.

Beat egg whites to soft peaks and fold into mango mixture. Spread in pie shell and decorate with strips of pastry dough. Bake in a preheated 350'F oven for 40 minutes or until filling is set. Let cool before serving. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla frozen yogurt if desired.
