Mama's Lemon Sponge Pie


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 heaping teaspoons flour
  • Juice from one lemon (or just a bit less than 1/4 cup)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Mix together all the above ingredients in order.
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into lemon mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees F for approximately 45 minutes.

Yield: one 8-inch pie

Now when I made it (I goofed) ...I forgot an ingredient...the when I made it the second time I added it...and honestly I preferred it without it...though I think I'll try it again...but use 1/2 cup milk and see how I like that.. The one I made had a wonderful lemon filling...the crust did get baked well...and there was a crusty type topping...really good actually...and a lot cheaper than the bought variety for sure..

For a 10 inch pie...(which isn't in a frozen crust) you just add 1/2 more of every ingredient...and of course it would have to bake longer.
