This is an old original Eagle Brand recipe, as found on the back of the label. It always gets rave reviews, and although a small wedge is enough, more is better! Notes: 1. You may substitute homemade for crust and filling. Other fillings such as raspberry, lemon pie etc work. 2. >"Sweetened Condensed Milk", NOT evaporated milk. You may use any brand, and Eagle makes low fat and no fat as well, and they may be interchanged freely 3. The acid in the juice is what sets up the filling, so work quickly after adding. 4. Try using lime juice instead of lemon, top with Chocolate Pudding and shaved chocolate and lime zest. and finally: 5. Try not to eat the whole thing yourself! Bon Appetit.
