  3. Press mixture evenly and firmly onto the bottom, and up the sides of a 9-inch glass pie plate.
  4. Bake crust for 12–14 minutes, or until lightly golden. Set aside to cool on a rack.

Filling

Directions
  1. In a large bowl whisk together the condensed milk, egg and yolks until combined well.
