1 8-inch deep dish pie



  • 2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk

  • 6 egg yolks

  • ½ cup lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • 1 (8 inch) deep dish graham cracker pie crust

  • 6 egg whites

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Beat sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, lemon juice, and lemon zest together in a bowl until smooth; pour into pie crust.

  3. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer in a glass or metal bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks; spoon onto the pie to cover completely.

  4. Bake pie in preheated oven until the tips of the topping begin to brown, about 3 minutes.
