Mama’s More Lemon Than Meringue pie

Hi everyone. Today I would like to share a very special recipe with you. Its a family favorite. This Lemon Meringue is the one my mother in law always bakes for my husband on his birthday. She’s not a fan of too much meringue so she only makes a thin layer but her lemon filling is the best I’ve ever tasted. Its firm and has a subtle balance between sweet and sour. One pie only lasts 1 day in our house.



For the crust

  • 2oo gram biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling

  • 2 cans of condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 egg yolks ( keep the egg whites for the meringue)

For the Meringue

  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (356 fahrenheit)

For the crust.

Crush the cookies until only rough crumbs are left. Mix the melted butter with the cookie crumbs and push it down into a pie pan.

For the filling

Mix all the ingredients well and pour onto the cookie crust.

For the Meringue.

Mix the egg whites and sugar until it is light and fluffy and scoop it onto the Lemon filling. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Served chilled.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe.I would love to hear from you!
