Lemon Pie With Graham Cracker Crust

31 Mar


This is my sister’s recipe, she was nice enough to share it with me so I could make a pie for my fella’s birthday. He loved the pie so much that he ate it for breakfast the next day.

Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients

 1/4 cup of graham crackers (chopped in blender)

4 T butter melted

3 T sugar

I do not have a blender that will chop up graham crackers. I have a bullet. It’s great for all sorts of things, but not everything. So I mashed my graham crackers with a potato masher and it worked just fine.

Mix the sugar with the finely crushed grahams and then dump it in the pie pan. Pour the melted butter over it and then press it to the sides of the pan.


Bake as needed for pie, or bake at 350° for 8 minutes for ready crust.


Pie Filling Ingredients

4 egg yolks

14 oz condensed milk

3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (room temp)

Separate the egg yolks and save the whites for breakfast. Mix yolks and milk for 2-3 minutes with a hand mixer if possible. Slowly add the lemon juice and mix well. Pour into crust. Bake at 350° for 22-25 minutes or until it sets.

Don’t forget the whip cream!
