This was just too easy and very delicious! I got 1/2 cup of juice from 2 lemons. I thought that there wasn't going to be enough filling but it was the perfect amount. It just covered the cookies and the Cool Whip evens out the taste to give it the perfect sweet/sour combination. This is definitely a new family favorite. Thanks so much for posting!
Can I just say yum, yum, and yum? This simple lemon pie is memorable. I squeezed fresh lemon juice, and also added in the zest from the lemons. I didn't have vanilla wafers on hand, so I made a quickie graham cracker crust instead. And since the farmers' market is exploding with fresh fruit right now, I topped this pie with slices of fresh peaches and fresh raspberries, and we just skipped the cool whip. What a treat! I will definitely use this one over and over again, for its simplicity and ease. I also think that it would be very nice frozen and served very cold, with fruit and whipped topping. That will be for the next time I make this stunning (but simple!) dessert. Sorry there is no picture -- the pie was gobbled up in about 30 seconds, and I couldn't even get my camera out of the case. Thanks, Ocean~Ivy.
I used a prepared graham cracker crust, but followed the recipe otherwise. This is a very easy, very rich pie that set up well.
