Birthday Lemon Ice Box Meringue Pie

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I made this pie for Lynn's Birthday yesterday.  It's really easy and tastes soooo good!

 

 

Ice Box Lemon Meringue Pie

 

1 can of sweetened Condensed milk

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

2 large eggs, separated

grind of one lemon (I know they mean zest....old recipe)

1/4 tsp lemon extract (optional...I never use)

1 8 inch graham cracker pie crust (I like the shortbread kind)

2 Tablespoons sugar

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

 

Blend the milk, juice, egg yolks, lemon rind and extract until it thickens

 

Pour into pie shell

 

Cover with meringue made by:

 

beating the egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.  Add sugar gradually and continue beating.

 

Bake pie in a 350 degree oven until meringue is golden brown (about 20 minutes).  Chill before serving...at least one hour.

 

Serves 6-8

 

(this came from one of my Grandmother's Alabama Home Ec Teacher's cook books from the '60's)

 

 

Pie filling in the crust waiting for the meringue

 

 

This is about how I like the meringue to look for this pie before putting it on the pie filling.

 

 

Pie after baking for about 20 minutes

 

 

It was delish!  Thanks for looking!

that would work!  Just need to "cook/brown" the meringue...the filling with the eggs...eggs got "cooked" with the lemon juice.
