Prep Time: 10 minutes plus time to cool and chill
Cook Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 to 40 minutes plus time to cool and chill
Servings: Makes 1 pie
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- dash of salt
- 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter, melted
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 2 cans (14 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
- 8 egg yolks
- 3 tablespoons grated lemon zest
Here's how to make it:
- To make the crust, combine all the crust ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Pour into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Set aside.
- To make the filling, stir together the lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl.
- In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and lemon zests together with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 6 minutes. Add the sweetened condensed milk mixture to the eggs, stirring until combined. Pour the filling into the graham cracker crust.
- Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges are set but the center still slightly jiggles. Cool for about 1 hour on the counter before putting the pie into the refrigerator (icebox) to chill.
