The Pirate's House Frozen Lemon Pie

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Oolala

From The Pirate's House restaurant in Savannah, GA. I found this on the Internet and someone listed it as one of those things you must have before you "kick the bucket" so here it is! There is a note that the crust here is similar to the "true" recipe which uses almond meal that is available in specialty stores.
