French Lemon Pie

Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This sets perfectly when baked, I usually prepare this pie in the morning to serve in the evening, the pie should be refrigerated for several hours and then served cold.

FANTASTIC! I love this lemon pie. I made the first one a day ahead to see how it would be, and it set just beautifully, then I made the second one the following morning. It is a very tart lemony pie, so I increased the sugar by a couple of tablespoons, and used your fantastic butter pie crust recipe#66929 for this recipe. I am so happy that I made two of them as everyone had a second piece. I topped the pie with whipped cream, everyone raved about these pies! thank you again KITTENCAL!
