    GrandmaIsCooking's Note:

    Fruit pies always make a good dessert, I think. Based on the reviews, I don't think any changes are necessary for this adopted recipe. The reviewer's suggestion of lemon juice instead of orange juice is a great idea if you're like me and always have lemons or lemon juice but rarely keep orange juice in the house.

      This recipe is almost identical to the recipe I was going to post, so I'll just review this one instead! The only difference is that I use lemon juice instead of the orange juice. Our family LOVES this pie. Served with ice cream, it makes a very decadent treat.

      This was a nice change from apple pie and easy to make. I made this without the lemon rind, but otherwise followed the recipe as given. The filling is only lightly sweetened but works well with the crumb topping. My kids and husband liked this pie too, so I'm sure I'll make it again.
