Nancy’s Lemon PieA delicious lemon pie. Enjoy!
- 2 cups of flour (all purpose)
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- Lemon zest
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 4 eggs
- 6 to 8 lemons
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 1 cup of sugar
Put the two cups of flour, the baking powder, the 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine, the yolks of the 4 eggs and the lemon zest in a large bowl. Combine dough until smooth (not kneaded). When it is joined, grease a round pie mold (or whatever you have), spread the dough gently in the mold leaving a small edge to contain the filling. Bake at 350 degrees for half an hour or until done. When cooked remove and cool.
While the dough is in the oven, prepare the filling and meringue. For the filling, put the milk in a container and add the lemon juice in an bowl. Do not beat! (No more than one cup of juice).
For the meringue, use your favorite recipe. Add the filling and meringue to the cooked dough and put on the oven rack to give it a nice color. It should be a tan color.
