Creamy Lemon Pie

 The month of June has a few special birthday's...Ben and Caribe celebrate their birthday's just one day apart!  Due to travel and work, they were celebrated together this year!
 Our family likes lemon so it was decided to have a refreshing lemon pie for celebrating!

Lemon Pie:

Make you favorite graham cracker crust or use this recipe:

2  1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
4-6 tablespoons sugar, your choice of sweetness
1/2 cup melted butter
Crumble your graham crackers in food processor.  Stir in the sugar and finally the melted butter.  After thoroughly mixing place crumbs in two 8" pie pans (I used glass).  Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Lemon Cream:

2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup fresh lemon juice
6 egg yolks
Mis together the milk, lemon juice and egg yolks until smooth.
Pour into prepared crusts and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.

At this point you can place in fridge overnight.

Before serving, whip 2 cups whipping cream with 1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar, depending on sweetness desired.

Cut pie into nice sized pieces and place on serving plates, top with whipped cream, and garnish with fresh fruits, lemon zest, and mint leaves!  

Be creative and enjoy~
