Oh So Sweet! Lemon Ice Box Pie!

This is definitely not a blog post for my hub. He hates lemons, and he likes my stories instead of recipes. So Hub, you can skip this blog post today.

My favorite pie is Lemon Ice Box Pie! Actually it is the filling for Lemon Ice Box Pie! Or maybe it is the sweetened condensed milk in the filling of the Lemon Ice Box Pie! Maybe I should just save some time making the pie and just open a can of Borden's Sweetened Condensed Milk, eat it with a spoon, and forget the pie! (Have thought about it).

Lemon Ice Box Pie (Memaw's)

1 can (sweetened) condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
 3 egg yolks
1 baked 8 inch pie shell or line pie pan with vanilla wafers

In a small mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until lemon color.
Gradually beat in condensed (think she meant SWEETENED condensed milk). 
Add lemon juice and mix well.
Pour into pie shell.
Top with meringue.
Brown meringue in hot oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned.
Cool and refrigerate until cold.
You may use whipped topping instead of meringue. Spread whipped topping over pie and cool and serve.

I don't like it with (to quote Papaw) "calf slobber", but Cool Whip works! Love this recipe!
