  • 9" pie dish
  • food processor
  • Microwave
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Lemon Zester
  • Cutting board
  • chef's knife


  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups Cool Whip
  • ½ cup lemon juice *fresh squeezed works best
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract


  • 1 ½ cups graham crackers 12 full sleeves
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon



  • Grease a 9" pie dish with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • Add graham crackers to a food processor and process crackers until crumbs are the texture of coarse coffee grinds.
  • In a large bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter.
  • Once mixed, firmly pat the crumb mixture into the greased pie dish.
  • Place pie crust uncovered in the fridge to set for one hour.

Lemon Cream Filling

  • In a large bowl, mix condensed milk, lemon juice, and zest until combined. Fold whipped topping into the lemon mixture using a rubber spatula until just combined.
  • Spoon mixture into set crust. Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours for the pie to set. You can also place this into the freezer for 2 hours to expedite the setting process.
  • Once pie is set, slice, and serve with optional lemon slice garnish, or additional whipped topiing.


Nutritional values may vary and are meant to be a guide.
From experience, this pie will slice best if it is frozen for up to 3 hours.
