I agree. Certainly, he is digging it out and typing now.

I know he is, but if he sends it to me in a private email, sorry about that.

I will try to forgive you, but that is one of my biggest pet peeves.

I share all of my recipes.

Now, where did Martini run off to?

A few different sites have this recipe which they claim is an 'adaptation' of Clancy's.

Link to Food and Wine Recipe

quote:

14 whole graham crackers, broken
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Two 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cups fresh lemon juice, plus 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
8 large egg yolks

Preheat the oven to 325°. In a food processor, pulse the graham crackers with the sugar and salt until finely ground but not powdery. Add the butter and pulse until the crumbs are evenly moistened; transfer to a 9-inch springform pan and press into the bottom and two-thirds up the side. Set the pan on a rimmed baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, whisk the condensed milk with the lemon juice. In another bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the lemon zest with the egg yolks until pale. Beat in the condensed milk mixture until smooth. Pour the filling into the crust.

Bake the pie for 25 minutes, until the center jiggles slightly and the edges are set. Transfer the pan to a rack; let cool for 1 hour. Loosely cover the pan with plastic wrap and freeze the pie for at least 6 hours.

Wrap a warm, damp kitchen towel around the side of the springform pan to release the pie; remove the ring. Using a hot knife, slice the pie, transfer to plates and serve.


I have some lemons and have been trying to find a good recipe for a lemon ice box pie too! Glad this thread was started.

Thanks, Pox! Didn't bother to google. Guess I could have tried that.

I looked for old threads on the subject when I got the lemons. I still don't know what I'm going to do with them.

There are a few recipes in both of these threads.

Use sugar cookies or lemon cookies instead of graham crackers and if you have Meyer lemons use them but bump up the amount.

The rest is just what's posted. It's an easy recipe that is very much the same as key lime pie.

Don't give them to junior posting above you. They might have too much grease.
