1 pack of Maria cookies
50 gr Melted butter

Juice of 2 to 3 lemons
2 egg yolks
1 can of sweetened condensed milk

2 egg whites
4 tbs sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Using a food processor, convert maria cookies into crumbs and add the melted sugar. Mix well until combined.
  • Using an oven pan, place the mixture on the bottom bake for 15 minutes or until it is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 to 10 min while you prepare the filling.


  • Combine the egg yolks, lemon juice, and sweetened condensed milk in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until fully combined.
  • Take another pan and pour the mixture and take it to the oven for 10 min. The pie will still be jiggly.
  • Remove the crust from the pan and transfer it to each glass, then add a piece of the filling on top.
  • Place all the glasses in the fridge and let it cool for 20 minutes.
  • In a bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry peaks are formed.
  • Gradually beat in sugar until soft peaks form.
  • Finally, spread over each pie glasses.
  • Enjoy.
  • You can always do the same recipe with a regular pie pan. You continue the recipe in the same pan.
  • You can use different cookies for your crust or even make a dough by yourself.
  • You can always add more lemon juice if you like more sour-sweet.
  • You can use whipped cream for the top as well, and is also very tasty.
  • This lemon pie is perfect for any occasion.
