Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon, divided
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.

    Step 2

    Stir graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar and half the lemon zest together in a medium bowl. Press the mixture firmly and evenly into the prepared pan. Bake until lightly browned around the edges, about 10 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

    Step 3

    Meanwhile, thoroughly whisk condensed milk, lemon juice, egg and the remaining lemon zest together in a medium bowl. Stir in blueberries. Pour the filling evenly over the baked crust. Bake until set, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool at room temperature for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour more.
