I cooked Easter dinner for my family and chose to use this receipe for dessert. It was DIVINE!! I now am scheduled for a cook off with a friend between this and their lemon pie. The only changes i made were i added an extra 1/4 tsp almond extract and we have some True lemon, it's crystalized lemon... so i was able to make it extra tart without ruining the consistency of the filling. The tartness was a nice contrast to the super sweet crust.
