Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Frozen Lemon Pie

on July 24, 2013

Today’s recipe sounded good last week when the weather was so hot here. It looks like it was one that came from Grandma’s sister, who would have celebrated her 102nd birthday on the same day as Grandma would have celebrated her 100th birthday. Note that Grandma wrote “V Good” in the upper right corner of the recipe card. That’s a big indicator that yes, this will be a great recipe to try.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Frozen Lemon Pie

3 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs

1 stick of butter

Mix together and put in bottom of 9 x 13″ cake pan and one pie plate.

Separate 6 eggs (use pasteurized if you’re worried about problems with this).

Beat 6 egg yolks.

Add one large can frozen lemonade concentrate that has been thawed.

Add 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk.

Beat until light and fluffy.

Add one pint of whipped cream.

Pour over cracker crumbs.

Beat egg whites with 1/2 cup sugar to make meringue.

Put on top of lemon mixture.

Brown under broiler.

Put in freezer and take out several minutes before serving.


She wasn’t kidding when she wrote that it burns easily!!! This was under the broiler for just over a minute and it did get a bit dark.



I was a bit concerned that the meringue wouldn’t be so great coming out of the freezer.


It was perfect. Never question Grandma’s recipe. She wrote “V Good” and she was right!
