    Barefoot Beachcomber's Note:

    Yummy!! And very classy looking. From Chatelaine magazine. I am a fan of easy yet delectable desserts and this qualifies on both counts. I've stated 3 lemons because it will depend on size and juicyness.

      Fabulous lemon flavour, and quite simple to make. I did add extra zest to the filling mixture in addition to the topping. I baked in a graham crust, and it was done in 30 minutes. I served it chilled. It's quite rich, so you could cut smaller portions giving you 10 - 12 servings. Thanks BB for a new twist on lemon pie. Made in honour of your hubby Ed.
