Make Lemon Icebox Pie at Home


Serves: 8

2 egg yolks 1 large egg
2 14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 prepared graham cracker crust 1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 tbsp sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and one large egg until fully combined.
  2. Slowly stir in the sweetened condensed milk until blended. Add the lemon juice and stir to blend. Be careful not to overmix!
  3. Pour into the graham cracker crust and bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the outside edges look set and the center jiggles just slightly.
  4. Remove and set on a pie rack to cool to room temperature, then transfer to the refrigerator for at least six hours. This pie tastes better the longer it chills, so let it sit overnight if you can!
  5. For the topping, stir together the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until blended.
  6. One to two hours before serving your Lemon Icebox Pie, set your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes. Return to the refrigerator to cool for another 45 minutes before serving.
