Delicious Cold Lemon Pie !

I had a baby shower in my house and I made a pie from my Estonian pie book. It is great for summer gatherings, as it is very light tasting and it doesn't take much time. 4 people asked for the recipe so I translated it for them and now I am sharing it with my Bikram Yogis :). If you end up making it, let us know how you liked it! It is worth the try as It doesn't take much effort at all!

Cold lemon pie

Digestive cookies 160g ( available in most food stores)
80 g butter
1 tbsp. Brown Sugar

5 egg yolks
400 g condensed milk  (its 300ml)
Squeezed lemon juice 1 dl (3-4 lemons) (its half a cup)

2.5 dl whipping cream (it’s up to you how much you want to decorate)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 lemon thinly sliced (this is a cool decorating idea!)

Crush cookies and mix with melted butter and brown sugar. Push mixture on a circle baking tray, corners too. Bake in 175 C (350 F) for 5-8 minutes and let cool. Beat the egg yolks until light and fluffy fluff, add condensed milk, and whip them forth. Mix in the lemon juice. Pour over bottom and share evenly. Bake another 10 minutes and cool. Put into the freezer and hold it, minimum 3 hours or overnight. Take the cake at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving. Whip the cream with vanilla sugar and decorate the cake with whipped cream and slices of lemon.
