jamie's notes for this recipe:
Every one has a lemon pie recipe so hope this is different and you like it. Naturally it is the borden condensed milk recipe but with a twist. Our local sea food resturant serves it in a Ritz Cracker Crust. Really is good and we all know lemon and cheese crackers go good with fish. I just wanted to share if you don't have it try you might want to keep it.

Hi Pat I have been seeing you on here and like your recipes. You look like my Aunt Nevadee who is no longer living. She loved to cook and I wish she was still here to help me make her famous apple, peach and blueberry dumplings. Boy she made everything from scratch and no recipe. Kept it all in her head. The best coconut pie I ever ate and the best pie crust I ever put in my mouth. The right amount of moist never dry or dough like. Thanks for sharing my recipe and I have joined those clubs too. This jap is the best thing that has happened for me. I am back in the kitchen again.
