DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the lemon slices and 1 1/2 cups of the sugar in a bowl; gently toss together so the slices are well coated. Let stand at least 2 hours; longer (even overnight) is better.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Divide the dough in half; roll out one-half and line the pie pan with it.
  • Stir the beaten eggs into the lemon mixture.
  • Spread the mixture over the pie dough.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup sugar over the filling.
  • Roll the remaining dough out and place over the filling.
  • Crimp the edges and cut vents on top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes; lower the heat to 375 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes more, until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center.
