Lemon Meringue Pie



I LOVE my mom's Lemon Meringue Pie!!! It is simply the BEST!! I've made it every Mother's Day for years now. We always look forward to it.


Mom's Lemon Meringue Pie

9 inch graham cracker crust
3 eggs, separated
1 (14 oz) Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup ReaLemon Lemon Juice from concentrate (yesterday, I used 3/4 cup!!!!)
1/4 t cream of tartar
1/3 cup sugar

Beat eggs yolk; stir in sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Pour into pie shell. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form; gradually add sugar- beat until stuff but not dry. Spread on top of pie, sealing CAREFULLY to edge of shell. Bake 12- 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until meringue is golden brown.

Cool and chill before serving.


I surely wish I could share a slice with you!!!
