I made this lemon sponge pie last week. Everyone said they liked the good lemon taste. I have made many pies but this was my first lemon sponge. I will make it again!!

I made this recipe, posted on another site, with a minor variation; it called for 2 TBL grated lemon zest, not specified by how many lemons. Otherwise it was identical and it was EXCELLENT!! My husband loved it! Definitely will be making this again and again!
