Magic Lemon Meringue Pie

This summer we started having Sunday Night Dessert Night. It is becoming a yummy tradition that my family loves...especially Greg. This week he requested a pie. I got this Lemon Meringue
Pie recipe from my Mom. So here goes.....

Magic Lemon Meringue Pie

1 graham cracker crumb crust
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs, separated
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
4 tbsp. sugar

Combine the lemon juice and rind and stir in condensed milk. Add the eggs yolks and mix
well. Pour into the pie crust.
Add cream or tartar to egg whites and beat till
almost peak stage. Add the sugar gradually
and continue beating till stiff but not dry.
Spread over your lemon mixture in the crust
and bake at 325 degrees till light brown
(about 15 minutes). Cool and eat.

This was a hit with everyone and in my dear
hubbies words..."y'all did really good with that
lemon pie".

I was very thankful for my Kitchen Aid mixer when beating the egg whites. It did all the work and we just watched!
