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

Excellent pie! Made this for Easter and everyone loved it. A thick, rich, lemony filling. I made early in the day and topped with whipped cream at serving. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made it for some guests and they all went crazy about it.They all had seconds. Loved it so much!!!!! I made some changes. For the crust I grinded dryed out brownies with buter to form a dry paste. Great contrast of flavor!!! Chocolate and lemon my 2 favorites. Used the whiped cream on top. Doesnt need it. Next time I will only decorate the pye with it. A cook from mexico.

If you are a lemon lover as I am, this pie is a sure hit! Creamy and very lemony, this pie needs no whipped cream topping except to decorate, if you prefer. I only had skim milk, so I used 1/2 cup skim with 1/2 cup heavy cream for the pie filling. This pie will go into my permanent recipe file to use again and again! So simple and so very tasty!! Thanks, Mary Lord!

I first had this pie in a restaurant in Idaho and loved it. I searched for the recipe and settled on this one. I must say it has been a favorite in my home ever since....to die for

Quick and easy! My kind of recipe! I made this for Easter dinner and it's really good. I used lite sour cream and it still tastes great. This one goes in my keeper file!
