Slice of Lemon Pie II

Recipe by mliss29

My friend Minnie gave me a copy of the Holiday Cooking 2005 from the Harvey County Independent, a paper that serves her hometown. I saw this recipe in there and I had to try it. It was so good! It was so tart! It mellowed a little over the next few days, but it was still so good.

It was my first time trying a 2 pie crust lemon pie. And wow it was good. DH doesn't like meringue so that's why I tried your recipe. I used 2 large lemons. It was enough. I used only 1 cup of sugar. Thanks Mliss. I made it with this crust : recipe#339607
