      This is a delicious pie. I made a graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie crust, and was out of milk, so I upped the water to 1 1/4 cups and used 1/4 cup of heavy cream. This was a birthday pie for my 78 year old mother, and she was wow'd by the perfect lemon taste. It was also beautiful. Thanks for a great recipe.
