Lemonade Pie

  • Author: Molly
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


This Lemonade Pie is key lime’s tangy, bright cousin, and it’s the perfect summer pie! Easy to make and bring to all the summer BBQs and potlucks! It’s a lemon lovers’ dream dessert.



For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 12 full graham crackers)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2-3 lemons, depending on size and juiciness)
  • 1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 4 large egg yolks

Optional for Serving:

  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh berries
  • Additional lemon zest


For the Crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in the melted butter until everything is moistened.
  4. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. I like to use a measuring cup or a small glass to really compact the crumbs down and into the edges of the dish.
  5. Bake the crust for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool completely before adding the filling.

For the Filling:

  1. While the crust bakes, whisk together the lemon zest, juice, sweetened condensed milk, salt, and egg yolks. Whisk until creamy and smooth.
  2. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and then transfer the pie to the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes or until the filling is mostly set. A little jiggle is OK – it will continue to firm up as it cools.
  3. Cool the pie to room temperature and then transfer to the fridge to finish setting for at least 2 hours (longer is better).

To Serve:

Remove the pie from the fridge and slice. Garnish with whipped cream and berries. The pie is best enjoyed chilled or at room temperature. Keep leftover pie in the fridge.
