Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • For the Graham Cracker Crust:
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 1 individual package)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • For the Pie Filling:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon pink grapefruit zest
  • ¾ cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice
  • 3000mg (3gm) vitamin C powder (either crush vitamin c tablets or use vitamin c already in powdered form)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar and melted butter. Stir to combine. Press the crust mixture into a 9-inch pie pan, pressing along the bottom and up the sides. Bake the crust for 7-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.
  4. For the pie filling: Whisk the egg yolks vigorously with a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined and no lumps of sour cream are remaining. Pour the filling into the pie crust shell. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes, or until set but still a little jiggly in the middle. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before transferring the pie to the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour before serving.
