This is a great summer pie, cool and refreshing with a slight tang. It keeps well in the freezer and fridge.

Delicious, dense, almost creamy, lemon pie. I loved the look of the lemon slices on top and the intense lemon flavor. Easy and impressive dessert! I served it with fresh sweetened whipped cream which really complimented the rich lemon filling.
