    Olha's Note:

    This recipe is light and delicate with just the right lemon tang. Most lemon pies are either too runny or too rubbery--this Best Ever pie is perfect.

      I found this recipe years ago for my husband, and he loves it! It always gets rave reviews, and stays saved on my favorites list for when the paper copy gets lost. I always add extra lemon juice, and use the fresh lemon juice from the zested lemons, on top of what is required in the recipe. Always comes out perfect! Thanks for such a great recipe, Olga!

      This was a tasty pie! I did use a frozen store bought pie crust and did add more lemon juice while pudding was cooling.

      A very good pie, which my FIL enjoyed (which is why I made it!). I think the lemon flavor might have come out more, if I had used fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
