Total Time3 hrs 25 mins
- 1 c graham crackers
- ⅓ c butter melted
- (or pre-made graham cracker crust)
- ½ c lemon juice (fresh or from concentrate)
- 1 ½ tsp unflavored gelatin
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
Start by crushing up 1 cup of Graham Crackers (I just pulse them in a food processor).
Then add ⅓ cup melted butter.
Mix the two ingredients into a pie pan and press the mixture evenly along the bottom, and up the sides (you could also purchase a pre-made graham cracker crust at the store....if you really want to make it easy!)
In a saucepan mix ½ cup lemon juice and 1 ½ teaspoon unflavored gelatin (this is found in the Jello aisle in most grocery stores).
Mix over low heat until the gelatin is dissolved.
Separate 2 eggs.
Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Add 3 Tablespoons sugar and beat again until shiny.
Separately, mix the yolks with 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Slowly stir in the gelatin mixture (from the stove) with the yolk and milk mixture.
Add the egg white mixture to the yolk mixture and fold together with a large spoon until incorporated.
Add the whipped mixture into the cracker crust and smooth until evenly distributed.
Chill the pie for 2-3 hours before serving to allow gelatin to set.
