Lemon Custard Pie

I recently saw this recipe in one of my favorite magazines, Taste of Home and knew I had to try it out.  I love lemon!!!  It immediately brought back wonderful memories of the Lemon Meringue pies my grandmother would lovingly make for us as children. There is something about a lemon custard pie that just brought the sweetest thoughts into my mind.  I definitely wanted to treat my family to these same wonderful memories that I was sure this pie would bring for years to come.  

It definitely did not disappoint at all.  The creamy texture and delicious soft taste of lemon was a huge hit with my family.  I can not wait for the next holiday so that I can make one to serve to my entire family.  They definitely will be impressed and I would rate this pie as EASY to make.

  1. This pie was a big hit at a family get together. I followed the recipe except I used 1/2 lemon juice and cut back the milk to 3/4 cup. I definitely will add this to my favorites.
