Yield: 8 servings
|10 \N||Graham cracker squares;|
|½ cup||Skimmed evaporated milk; cold|
|1 pack||Dream Whip;|
|27 packs||Equal sweetener;|
|2 \N||Egg yolks;|
|2 larges||Lemons; 1/2 cup juice|
|3 \N||Egg whites;|
Melt margarine on medium to low heat. Roll graham crackers into crumbs with rolling pin. Mix crumbs and melted margarine. Pat to make crust on bottom and sides of pie pan. Chill.
Add cold evaporated milk to Dream Whip (do not add vanilla). Sprinkle in 24 pkg. Equal. Mix and beat according to directions. Beat egg yolks slightly, and gradually stir in lemon juice. Gradually fold in the whipped Dream Whip. Spread in pie crust. Turn on broiler so it will get hot. Beat 3 egg whites frothy (use clean beaters so whites will beat up as fluffy as possible). Add 1 tbs. sugar and beat until blended in. Add another tbs. sugar and 3 Equal pkg. and beat until soft peaks form. Spread meringue over top. Spread meringue to stick to the edges so it won't shrink when you broil it.
Put under broiler for 30-60 seconds until meringue is lightly browned. IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL AND IS EASY TO BURN. The flavors will blend better if you chill for 5 hours.
