I tinkered a little. No sweetened condensed milk so I used plain condensed with about 1/3 cup of sugar added. I don't know if that was why the mixture didn't thicken in the double boiler after about 20 hot minutes (It is August!) so I added about two tbls. of corn starch mixed with a little water to make it smooth, added it to the double boiler mix and Voila! Nicely thickened. Poured it hot into the baked, but lightly baked, pie shell, topped with meringue made from the eggs, plus a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/3 cup sugar added slowly while whipping the egg whites. Baked 15 minutes at 375. Looks great. Tastes great. Oh, yes, I added the zest from my squeezed lemons cause I like that extra zing.
