Zesty, tangy, sweet & creamy lemon pie. In my eyes, there is nothing better. My Mom has been making this recipe for years, as my Dad and I share a love for lemon.
I remember watching her make this pie. sometimes being tasked with juicing the lemons or cracking the eggs. Besides the fact that it's delicious, it takes me back to some happy memories. I love how food has the power to do that.
So, beat the heat with a cold slice of lemon pie shared with someone you love. When I say share, of course I mean everyone gets their own piece. Desserts aren't for actual sharing.
