READY IN: 35mins




  • To make the crust, combine the crushed Granita with the melted butter and firmly press the crumb mixture evenly on the bottom and sides of two 9 inch pie plates. Bake at 350F (180C) for 7 minutes and let cool before pouring the pie mixture into it.
  • Lightly whisk 6 egg yolk little and add condensed milk to the egg yolks and stir a little again. Pour juice from the lemons on top and let it sit a while as you make the meringue topping.
  • To make the meringue, whip the egg whites until stiff with cream of tartar. Add vanilla and sugar.
  • Stir the lemon juice into the condensed milk mixture until well combined.
  • Pour the lemon mixture into 2 pie crusts and top with the meringue.
  • Bake at 400F (200C) until slightly browned.
  • Let the pie cool and then place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Notes:
  • When serving, dip the knife in cool water before slicing to get a clean cut on the meringue.
