I have been searching for a double or two-crust lemon pie for years and finally found this at BakingBits. If anyone else out there does not like meringue, this pie is for you!

Karen, this pie was a big hit with my family at Thanksgiving dinner! I even had several requests for the recipe! I followed your recipe exactly and wounldn't change a thing. I'm not a big fan of meringue, so I liked the double crust idea! I will definitely be making this one again! Thanks for sharing!
