Yum! I live an hour from Al's Oasis and have eaten this pie many times at that restraunt. I even have had the recipe for several years. However, I finally chose to make my own for this Easter dinner. I don't know why I waited so long. This is the perfect combo of creamy and tart. I did have a problem with step #10. The chilled filling was very stiff and "gelled". It was impossible to fold into the pudding/cream cheese mixture. I finally used my mixer to combine the 2 mixtures. I "frosted" the pie with real whipped cream. Everyone loved it. This was definately worth the effort.
Wish I could give this 10 stars--it was that good! It reminded me quite a bit of key lime pie, only a lemon flavor, of course. Wonderful!
