  • Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest and egg yolks.
  • Stir until mixture thickens.
  • Pour into cooled crust.
  • Add cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat until almost stiff.
  • Add sugar gradually, beating until stiff and glossy but not dry.
