I made this pie for Mother's Day and it was sooo easy! My 5 year old daughter helped make it and it turned out really good. I added a little lemon zest and the next time I think I would add a little more to make it a little more tangy. I like a strong lemon flavor and this was not very strong but I used bottled lemon juice instead of fresh so tht might be the reason. I also didn't have real whipped cream. I used cool whip instead.
