The Best Lemon Meringue Pie With Graham Cracker Crust

As a child, lemon meringue pie with graham cracker crust was my absolute favorite dessert, and as an adult, I can make it as frequently as I like! I feel as though it is the perfect balance of sweet and acidic flavors.


01 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts

02 4 pasteurized egg yolks

03 2 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk

04 3/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice


The first thing on our list is pre-heating our oven to 375ºF. Afterward, grease a 10-inch deep-dish plate or similar equipment that you have readily available.


To make the crust, mix the graham cracker crumbs and chopped walnuts in a bowl. Afterward, pour in the melted butter. Make sure it is not scolding hot!


Once everything is incorporated, press the mixture into your plate. Make sure to cover the bottom and sides!


You can place your crust in the oven for 8 to 12 minutes. When it is done, do not turn the oven off! We still need it. Also, make sure to set the crust aside to cool until it reaches room temperature.
