– 1/2 cup sugar

Steps

1. Turn the temperature in the oven up to 325 degrees F.

2. For the crust, put the graham cracker crumbs and sugar into a mixing dish and toss them together until they are completely incorporated. After that, include the butter that has been melted. Put the mixture in a pie dish with a diameter of 9 inches and pack it down firmly.

3. Condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and egg yolks should be combined for the filling in a medium bowl. The egg whites should be set aside for the meringue topping. The filling should then be poured into the crust.

4. To make the meringue, place the egg whites and cream of tartar in a medium bowl and use an electric mixer to whisk the mixture until it forms soft peaks. Next, add the sugar and continue to whip the mixture until the peaks are firm.

5. The meringue should be spread evenly over the magic lemon pie, and it should reach all the way to the crust’s edge. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the meringue acquires a light golden color. Before serving, let the dish chill for at least two hours.
