what you need
  • 1 can Eagle Brand or Meadow Gold sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (ReaLemon)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 baked (8-inch) pastry shell or 8-inch graham cracker crust
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
make it
Combine sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and rind. Blend in egg yolks. Pour into pastry shell.

Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar & sugar (add sugar just 1 Tbsp. gradually). Beat until peaks form. Pile over the filling gently.

Bake @325 for 12-15 minutes or until meringue is just golden brown.
This was our beloved Nanny's favorite pie -especially in summer.

Sometime she would use lime juice & a little green coloring, thus "key lime" (a little coloring means stick end of toothpick in green cake color & them swirl it into the filling mixture for just a little color).

Rated  by godslamb2 on 4/16/2009 I made this pie and gave some to my neighbor and she said it was the best lemon meringue pie she had ever eaten. I was afraid it wouldn't be tangy enough, but it was. So easy to make and very few ingrediants needed. I used a regular pie crust. A keeper for sure.
