This Retro pie was first spotted by me in the early 70's when Jello salads were big. It was on a book called the Joys of Jello. I fell in love imediately. It is one of my favorites. I added the Lemon Poppy seed crust a few years ago when I didn't have the prebought crust. This is an easy pie that is wonderful on a hot day
