For the crust, combine butter, graham crackers crumbs, and almonds into a 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 5-10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine the milk, lemon juice, and half of the zest; blend in egg yolks.
Pour the filling into the crust, refrigerate for 1 hour.
For the meringue, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
Gradually beat in the sugar and remaining zest until stiff peaks.
Spread the meringue over the filling, spread it to touch the edge of the crust all around.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown.
