I remember Orchard's Restaurant, and this pie. It is very close to what I remember. Be careful not to cool the custard for too long or it will be difficult to make a smooth mixture when adding the sour cream. I will make this pie again and again. Thanks!!!

Followed the recipe and directions exactly. My husband LOVES lemon meringue pie, but I can never get it right, so I decided to try this one instead and he said it was BETTER then lemon meringue! This will be a keeper. Thank you
