Ken's Luscious Lemon Pie

My husband, Ken doesn't really cook. He makes a few things, but he really isn't a cook- yet. He says when he retires it's something he wants to learn. But, he came home from work one day really excited about a dessert he'd had at an office potluck lunch. He begged the "family recipe" from his employee. She says they have it at every family gathering. He loved it and has made it several times since. I've never made it. I was touched that he made it for a neighbor when she had surgery and took it over to her. I don't think she knew what a treasure that was! I also don't think he told her he made it. Anyway, the recipe is simple and delicious. The original recipe was double this and put in a 13x9 pan with a graham cracker crust. We thought the store-bought crust was easier and a better size for just the two of us.
Luscious Lemon Pie
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 pint whipping cream whipped, with a little sugar added (or 8 oz. Cool Whip)
1 graham cracker crust
crushed graham crackers for the top

Pour the milk into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Pour the lemon mixture into the crust. Spread the whipped cream over the top. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the top. Put the plastic top from the crust over the top. Chill for several hours.
