I made this pie and it was just perfection. I could kiss my husband for planting a Meyer lemon tree just outside my kitchen door. It only took one of those huge babies to make this delicious gem. It was so good that I just printed out the recipe to mail to a friend who is anxious to make it a part of her go-to recipes.
