Slice of Lemon Pie II

"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

    Hubby says this is his new favorite pie, even over the coveted Thanksgiving bourbon pecan. It's creamy, tart, and gets even better after some time in the fridge. Of course, I cant leave well enough alone-I sprinkled a handful of frozen raspberries over half of the pie before placing the top crust. The raspberry side was also delicious and so beautiful; like pink jewels.

    This pie was excellent! I used 3 regular sized lemons cut in sections to remove the pith. I'm surprized this recipe dosen't have a very high rating yet! Everyone that likes lemon needs to try this! Thanks for posting!

    This recipe made it into our Book #231450. 2/27/08 - We love one bowl desserts and this one is oh so simple and quick to put together! I made a lattice crust for the top, and I segmented the lemons so there would be no pith. I also used 3 lemons cause I just love lemons. Wonderful fresh lemon pie. A perfect recipe. :)

    ABSOLUTELY GREAT PIE! I'm not a big fan of making meringue, so this recipe was right up my alley! This was the first time I'd ever even seen a double-crust lemon pie, & I'm glad to have made it! Another time I might take a hint from Bird's review & add another lemon or else use 2 LARGE ones! Lemon lovers, I highly recommend this dessert! You're missing out if you don't try it!
