I received this recipe from my mom who has always been an awesome baker. It's very easy and so, so good. Once you make it, you'll be making it over and over again! Enjoy!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

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

  • 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.

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

If I could have given it a no star I would have. It’s not your old fashioned lemon meringue pie. The body of the pie doesn’t cook. It says at the bottom it’s raw eggs and that’s exactly what it tastes like. I’m sorry. You might like this because your mom made it, and I get that, totally!! I did not like it and will go back to my old fashioned recipe where you cook the yolks with lemon juice, cornstarch and sugar. I know it’ll all get eaten. Sorry again. Read More
