Lemon Icebox Pie

This recipe comes from my mother in law... it is SO GOOD. I could eat the whole pie myself.

What You Need:
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsp sugar (separated into 4 and 2)
1 stick of butter (melted)
3 large eggs
2 cans condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup lemon juice (or more, to taste... I probably used just under 1 cup)

What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 350. In deep dish pie plate, mix 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs and 4 tbsp sugar.

Add melted butter and press to pie shape.
Place in oven for approximately 10 minutes and remove.
(of course, if you're lazy you can skip this step by buying a pie crust!)

Combine condensed mix and 2 egg yolks (save the whites in a separate bowl), add lemon juice and stir (taste it, you can add more lemon juice if you want).

Stir by hand and pour into completed crust.

In a glass bowl, mix on high, 3 egg whites until fluffy.

Add 2 Tbsps of sugar. Beat until glossy. Add 1 tsp vanilla and mix.

Spread over filling and place in the oven on low broil until brown.

Chill for 2 hours!
