    Sydney Mike's Note:

    I've tweaked this recipe just slightly to make a single pie. The original was found in the Feb/Mar 2010 cooking magazine, Taste of Home, and this lemon lover couldn't resist posting it here! Preparation time does not include the time for each of the several layers to cool to room temperature and/or set.

      Super, super yummy! The only thing changed was the crust. I opted for a graham cracker crust and I am so glad I did! The combination of crust with the lemon filling was very tasty. I did use 2 crusts since they aren't deep - and just divided the layers between the 2. So....2 pies for the same amount of ingredients for 1! :) If another "fruity" pudding was out there...orange or raspberry would be yummy to. But I only know of lemon. Thanks so much for sharing! This was perfect for the 3 hottest day of the year up here! lol Made for the August 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
