WOW! I made this pie for Father's Day brunch and it was a huge success. When preparing the pie I tasted the filling prior to putting it into the pie crust and was weary that it may not have enough lemon flavor. However after it chilled overnight it had just the right amount of tartness. My mother-in-law begged for the recipe and I'm almost ashamed to give it to her as it was embarassingly easy but FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing I will definitely be making this one regularly.
An awesome summer pie! Excellent with BBQ or potluck if you want a light lemony dessert. I like to make my own graham cracker crust (buy the ready to use Keebler Graham cracker crumbs) since it tastes so much better - sweeter crunchier and homemade tasting. I think the ready made crusts always taste stale and they crumble and fall apart when you cut into them. Like others I added about 5-6 drops of yellow food coloring added 1.5 teaspoon lemon extract and increased lemon juice to 2/3 cups (use quality bottled lemon juice). Sweet and tangy similar to a lemon chiffon pie and will take you a whole 15 min. from start to finish. TIP- Freeze this especially if you add more lemon juice. Trust me it won't be 'frozen' but will taste like a silky key lime pie coming out of the freezer. The fridge isn't cold enough to firm this up. I also make this in a 9 in. springform pan which makes serving and cutting very easy.
This is my new favorite dessert! It's so easy and fabulous. I thought it wasn't quite lemon enough the 1st time so the 2nd time I made it I used 2/3 cup lemon juice and it came out a little softer but zingier which I like. I also put a few drops of yellow food coloring to make it the perfect lemon-yellow color. It's my new standby though it's so easy and delicious!
A great addition to my Easter Dinner. This pie was so easy to put together! I upped the lemon juice to 1/2 a cup added the zest from one grated lemon and used real whipping cream and a small amount of yellow food coloring. For those of us that love lemon this was a big hit. Thanks.
