  1. What a great find. It's sure to be a great cooking textbook with fabulous recipes. Thank you for this recipe. I will be making it especially for my husband soon. Lemon Meringue Pie is his favorite and I'm sure he will love this version of Lemon Pie. Thanks for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday too. :-)

  2. Oh, my goodness, I think this is the same Lemon Pie recipe my mom used all the time I was growing up.

  5. That looks great. I am glad to have this classic recipe.

  6. Lemon pie is my middle son's favorite..he always asks for it instead of birthday cake. His birthday is the end of this month so I'll have to try your recipe!

  7. I posted a lemonade pie this week. I guess we had the same idea! So refreshing.
