Instructions

For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick baking spray. Line with parchment paper, allowing two of the sides to overlap (you want an overhang of at least 2-inches on two sides) and set aside until needed. 
  2. In a large bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and ginger and, using a rubber spatula, mix well to combine. Press the mixture into the bottom - and slightly up the sides - of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake the crust in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and set aside on a cooling rack until needed.

For the Creamy Lemon Pie Filling:

  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand held electric mixer, beat the egg yolks on medium-speed for 2 minutes. Slowly drizzle in the sweetened condensed milk and continue to beat for an additional 3 minutes. Add in the lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon extract and beat smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Reduce the mixer speed to low. Slowly pour in the lemon juice. Beat on low speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the filling on top of the partially baked crust. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until the top and edges are set but the center is still slightly jiggly. 
  4. Place the pan on a wire cooling rack and cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  5. Slice and serve chilled, with confectioners' sugar and raspberries, if desired.
