When I was growing up, this was a standard summertime dessert. We had a Ponderosa Lemon Tree in the backyard and my mother would use the fresh lemons to fix this. I know that Momma had been brought up eating this dessert that my Grandmother made and that the recipe was on the back of the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk can. My mother used to make it in a loaf pan instead of a pie pan, but either works well. I really love this and it is truly simple to make, especially if you use a store-bought Graham Cracker Pie Crust!
