Grandma Cantwell's Easier than π Lemon Pie


Easier than π, this pie has may varieties, but this is the original recipe from Grandma Cantwell (Carol). Be careful not to over-mix!

1 baked 9-inch pie shell or graham cracker crust
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
(optional: 1/2 tsp. freshly-grated lemon zest)

Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a medium glass bowl. Add lemon juice and stir just until the juice binds (is incorporated) with the milk.  Do not over-mix or it will become runny and not stay together. Add the zest and stir to distribute. Pour into pie crust, cover, and chill in the refrigerator 2-3 hours.

Serve with whipped cream on top and/or raspberries. Simple, but sweet treat for a lovely spring dessert.

Serves 8.
