Slice of Lemon Pie

This was a winner in a Pillsbury Bake-off back in the 60's. It became one of Mama's favorite desserts to fix for company and Sunday dinner. It is wonderful.

    I wanted lemon pie not too long ago and did a search for a recipe. I would have never thought of making anything except a Lemon Icebox or Lemon Meringue pie, so when I saw this recipe, I had to try it. WOWOWOWOWOWOW!! GREAT flavor and totally different from the lemon pies I am used to. GREAT addition to my recipe file and I will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing!
