Description

A silky, sweet, and smooth lemon pie. Made just like a traditional key lime pie, but with meyer lemons.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Egg Yolks
  • 1 cup Meyer Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Meyer Lemon Zest
  • 2 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk (14oz Each)
  • 1 whole Prepared Graham Cracker Crust
  • 1 cup Whipped Cream (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat egg yolks with meyer lemon juice and zest.

Add sweetened condensed milk and beat to combine completely with the egg mixture.

Bake for 5-10 minutes, until small bubbles form.

Top with or serve alongside whipped cream. Use my stabilized whipped cream recipe if you want to top with whipped cream before serving time.

Notes:

I suspect that regular lemons will work in this recipe too, but I have not tried them yet.

For homemade graham cracker crust, I use 1 1/4 cup cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup butter, and 1/4 cup sugar pressed into the pan and baked for about 7 minutes at 375 degrees.

You suggested to use your stabilized whip cream recipe, but where does one find that recipe? Thank You

Probably took at least 20 minutes to cook right.

Maybe a can and a half of sweetened condensed milk. Feel like there was too much of it.

So, just the yolk, or the whites too? Seems like the whites would help stabilize faster. If you added whites, would have meant the one thing wrong with mine.

I made this pie AGAIN because it was so delicious. No one had enough of it before it was gone. I used half meyers and half regular lemons. Just as good! And 17 minutes was just the right amount of time to bake it. Thanks again!

Everyone who ate this pie LOVED this pie! I must say, though, that after 10 minutes the pie looked no different. I let it go to 15 minutes, when the surface stopped being so glossy. The center didn’t slice as cleanly as the rest, and I’m pretty sure 17 minutes would have been spot on. Still, this pie is simple, delicious, and just plain wonderful. Thank you!

This was so easy to make and really yummy! I added a splas of vanilla and let the mixer go for a while which gave it a very fluffy texture .

I’m not usually a big fan of lemon, but my brother requested a lemon pie for his birthday. This turned out beautifully and even converted my anti-lemon judgment! So simple, and the homemade graham cracker crust is completely worth it!

This pie is awesome, and everyone should make it asap. I had to cook mine for 17 minutes, though. Cook time aside, this is the simplest, most delicious lemon recipe around, and it’s guaranteed to impress your friends and family.
