- 1 cup (227 g) heavy cream
- 2 Tbsp (25 g) sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- some fresh lemon slices

Instructions - Pie
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9-inch pie plate with vegetable oil.
In a large bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers, 1∕3 cup of the granulated sugar, and lemon zest (optional) and stir to blend. Stir in the melted salted butter until well blended. Press the cracker mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie plate. Bake until firm, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer), beat the condensed milk, egg yolks, lemon juice, and salt on medium speed for 4 minutes.
Pour the mixture into the baked pie crust. Return to the oven and bake until the center is set when the pan is gently nudged, about 10 minutes.
Cool the pie on a rack for 30 minutes. Place in the refrigerator until set, at least 1 hour and up to 3 days.
Instructions - Whipped Cream
In a medium bowl, with a handheld electric mixer, beat the heavy cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla on high speed until fluffy and the cream holds a soft peak when you pull the beater out of the bowl.
Spread the cream on the cooled pie. Garnish with fresh lemon slices, a sprinkle of lemon zest, candied lemon peel, and mint sprigs.
