I was afraid this pie would taste like "cool whip", so I added a brick of cream cheese. Use room temp cream cheese, whip it until it is creamy. Slowly add the sweet condensed milk and whip until completely smooth. Then continue with the recipe. I will definitely use two bricks of cream cheese and use a 12 oz container of cool whip instead of the 16 oz. Cutting down on the cool whip and adding the cream cheese will give it a more "homemade - less plasticy" flavor. I would also suggest adding the lemon zest of the lemon. UPDATE: Although I thought this deserved 3 stars, I did take two of these pies to a party and EVERYBODY LOVED them. I used the no roll crust recipe from this site and people thought is was a special macademia nut crust!
