Delicious recipe and easy to make. We added a dash of cinnamon and filled it with blueberries.

This was actually pretty good! I wanted to make a lemon cream pie but had no graham crackers. The taste is different, but it's still quite good. I'll definitely keep this in mind when my celiac sister-in-law comes calling!

I used it instead of the included crust to make a box mix of lemon squares gluten free. Excellent!
