  • 1 c graham crackers
  • 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.
  • Serve chilled.
