3 egg yolks
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. lemon juice
8- or 9-inch baked pie crust or graham cracker crumb crust
whipped topping or whipped cream
lemon zest (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees . Beat egg yolks in medium bowl; gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Pour into crust.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and cool 1 hour. Chill at least 3 hours. Before serving, spread whipped topping or whipped cream over pie. Garnish with lemon zest, if desired. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.

Notes: Silas made this for our family and it was delicious. The texture is very similar to cheesecake and the lemon flavor is definitely noticeable, though not overwhelming. It can also be baked in an 8-inch square pan and served like bar cookies if you want to leave the whipped cream out.
