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.
