Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fine graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, melted
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 large egg yolks, whites reserved for meringue
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Step 2

For the crust: In a mixing bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and sugar until combined. Then, stir in the melted butter. Press the mixture firmly into a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.

Step 3

For the filling: In a medium bowl, mix the condensed milk, lemon juice, zest and egg yolks, reserving the whites for the meringue. Pour the mixture into the crust.

Step 4

For the meringue: Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, then add the sugar and whip until peaks are stiff.

Step 5

Spread the meringue over the pie and seal to the edge of the crust. Bake until the meringue browns slightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
