Magic Lemon Pie


Incredibly Zesty Ingredients:

1 can (14 oz) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest or 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
2 eggs, separated
1 graham cracker or baked pie crust (8 or 9 inches)
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 tablespoons sugar
Guided Steps to Zesty Perfection:

Warm the oven to 325°F. In a medium mixing bowl, amalgamate sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest (or extract), and egg yolks. Stir until the mixture gracefully thickens, then lovingly pour into your chosen cool crust (graham cracker or pie).

In another medium bowl, whisk egg whites and cream of tartar at a high speed until they form soft peaks. Gradually add sugar one tablespoon at a time, persistently beating on medium speed, for around 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves and forms firm, glistening peaks.

Elegantly spread the meringue over the pie, ensuring it is meticulously sealed at the crust edge to avert shrinkage. Bake for a golden 12 to 15 minutes, or until the meringue boasts a delicate brown hue.

Allow to cool, then slice to serve and let the zesty euphoria envelop your senses. Remember to lovingly store any remaining slices in the refrigerator, ensconced for freshness.
