Deep South Lemon Pie

You’ll Need:

5 egg whites
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon yellow food coloring
1 baked graham cracker crust

Procedures : Make graham cracker crust according to box directions. Be sure to bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool. Reserve 1/2 cup crumbs for pie topping. Grate 1 tablespoon lemon rind and sprinkle on crust. Let stand while filling is being made.

For filling, beat egg whites very stiff, adding sugar gradually. Mix in a separate bowl sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and food coloring. When this is mixed well, fold into stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour mixture into graham crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup graham crumbs. Keep refrigerated. This pie may also be frozen for future use
