Good and easy! The traditional Eagle Brand lemon pie. Good amount of lemon flavor, just the right tartness. I used a giant lemon from my tree and added about a tablespoon of lemon zest. Omitted the food coloring, it doesn't need it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I got this same recipe off of Either way it was a huge hit I made it twice in two weeks. My husband who doesn't like lemon meringue pie loves this one.
