Easy Lemon Meringue Pie

This was my first attempt at making a meringue pie and it was delicious. If I can make it then anyone can. You will need:

  • 1 can 14 0z. sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 graham cracker crust

In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add the condensed milk and lemon juice. Stir until blended. Pour into crust. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Meanwhile make the meringue. You will need:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add sugar. Mix until blended. Spread the meringue over the filling to edge of crust. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the meringue is a light brown.
