Great fresh flavor. Perfect for summer. A way to make the recipe a little leaner would be substitute the sugar for 1 1/2 times the amount with Splenda.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together the sugar and butter. Mix in a separate bowl with a whisk, the zest of 1 lemon, juice of 1 1/2 lemons, 2 egg yolks, milk, salt and flour. Add lemon mixture to sugar and butter. Mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the lemon/sugar mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
