Directions

Pour evaporated milk in glass or stainless steel mixing bowl (plastic just doesn't allow the milk to whip well) and chill in freezer 1 hour. Note: I usually just stick the can of milk in the freezer for 30 minutes or so--just don't let it freeze in the can. You can make it fat free by using the Fat Free Evaporated Milk.

Grate lemon rind from lemons and juice lemons (should have about 1/4 cup of juice) You can also use 2-3 tablespoons of frozen lemonade instead of the fresh lemons & sugar.

Reserve 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs. Pour remaining graham cracker crumbs in a 9x9 pan. Evenly distribute over bottom of pan.

Whip milk until the consistency of whipped cream. Add lemon juice. Add sugar gradually until blended. Remove beaters and stir in lemon rind until well blended. Pour milk mixture carefully over graham cracker crumbs. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top of mixture.

Place in freezer. Usually takes 2-3 hours to freeze. Serve either sliced in squares or spoon into parfait glasses. Enjoy!
