2 cans sweetened condensed milk
4 lemons, juiced
2/3rd cup sugar, divided
6 eggs, separated
1 box vanilla wafers
1/4th cup butter, melted

Preheat Oven 350 degrees.
To prepare the crust crush up about 1/2 box of vanilla wafers. Mix the melted butter with the crushed crumbs in a bowl. Halve this mixture and add to two pie plates. Use a fork and spread evenly. Place whole cookies around the whole pie pan. Set aside. For the filling mix sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and 1/3rd cup sugar. Next add the juice of the lemons. Mix well. Pour half of this mixture into each pie plate with prepared crust. Now whisk egg whites in a bowl until frothy, then add about 1/3rd cup sugar to egg whites. Continue to whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Then spread meringue over each pie. Bake pies for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before placing in fridge for several hours.
