Bright Star Lemon Pie

There is a restaurant in Bessemer, Al. called the Bright Star. It's been around all of my life (a lot of years), that people travel from all corners of Alabama to eat at. One of the main attractions are their desserts! The lemon pie is one of the favorites and at long last, they've shared the recipe with us!

The Bright Star's Lemon Icebox Pie

4 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk, chilled
4 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, chilled
2 9-inch graham-cracker pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)
1 can whipped cream (for topping)

In a bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks. In a steady stream while whisking, add lemon juice to mixture until well blended.(Note: mixture will thicken.) Pour mixture into pie crusts. Refrigerate at least one hour. Before serving, top pie with whipped cream. (Makes two 9-inch pies)

I made them this weekend for the hubby, who couldn't wait. They are fabulous. You must give this one a try!
