I just LOVE this pie , it has just a tartness from the lemon which i like. The longest prep time to make this is letting the pudding cool to room temp , if I'm in a hurry I will set the filling in the freezer for a few minutes to help it cool down.

I have been making this pie for years and have and I got it to begin with from taste of home and it sure is good!!
