Lemon Icebox Pie

I have received a few requests to share my lemon icebox pie recipe. This pie is wonderful and we have it at absolutely every holiday. I even have a cake recipe that is also Lemon Icebox.

I want to give a warning that the recipe uses two uncooked egg yolks. My family has been making this pie way longer than I have been alive, and the yolks have never been a problem. But, if the raw egg scares you, I believe Emeril's recipe does not call for egg. After searching different recipes, I may also add a block of cream cheese to mine to thicken it up a bit, because lets face it, cream cheese makes everything better!

Lemon Icebox Pie - (Recipe from my lovely mawmaw)

1 graham cracker crust (Chilled) - If you can find a Nilla wafer crust, they are even better

1/2 cup lemon juice (minute maid makes frozen lemon juice and it works perfectly)

1tsp grated lemon rind (I usually leave this out if I use the minute maid juice)

1 can (14 oz.) Condensed milk

2 eggs yolks

Combine lemon juice and rind. Gradually stir into condensed milk. Add yolks one at a time and stir until blended. Pour into chilled crust. Put in fridge to set. Top with Cool Whip topping.



  1. AWESOME! I was just gonna comment your last post and say you should post a recipe for this !

  3. The acid in the lemon juice "cooks" the egg yolks. :) No need to worry about them. This looks so delicious. Might have to tempt my boyfriend away from his health-food with it... *shifty eyes*

  4. That's almost identical to our lemon meringue pie filling, we just put meringue on top and bake it before chilling it. YUM!

  5. Yummy! PS- I gave the liebster award!

  6. good information ... I have read and will be added to my personal knowledge... thanks
