This pie is so lemony and delicious! I make it, at least, every two months. It's quick and easy to make and you don't even need to get out your hand mixer! Everyone loves this pie, so if you plan to take it for a gathering of more than ten people, you'd better make two or three (and take a copy of the recipe because people will ask for it.)
