    Absolutely do love the taste of lemon, & this chess pie was just the ticket for the 2 of us! We actually shared it with 2 friends here for the day, & it didn't last but one meal! Easy to prepare, which just add to its attractiveness! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

    These were good and I'm glad it came out fine coz while I was mixing them all up, the mixture didn't look smooth. Next time, I'll just use melted butter for a smoother batter, cut down on the lemon since even DH noticed that it came out a tad bit strong. Thanks,2 Bleu.
