"This simple recipe can be served as is in a graham crust or you can dress it up with a strawberry or peach glaze. Either way a little cool whip or whipped cream on top is good." — Jan Guinn

Very easy recipe. Make sure that the cream cheese if fully softened before mixing the ingredients. I added more lemon juice, because it just didn't taste like lemon pie. My family loves it. I have made it 3 times already.
As indicated by other reviewers, this recipe tastes overwhelmingly like cream cheese rather than lemon. I used 1/2 cup of fresh lemon and plenty of zest, and still the cheese flavor was too strong. Furthermore, I beat the cream cheese- don't do this! Cream cheese gets grainy when overmixed, which I didn't know until I made this.
This was a easy & a great recipe. I added a little vanilla and sprinkled some lemon zest on top.
Great recipe! Easy to make and delicious. I added a little lemon zest to take the flavor up just a notch. I'll be making this one again.
Fantastic pie. Quick and easy. Just one thing though. I don't know if it's just me, but I thought the condensed milk slightly overpowered the other tastes. I think next time I'll use a tad less than what's called for.
As suggested by others, be sure the cream cheese is fully softened, otherwise you get lumps in your pie. I made this with 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 TB sugar, 1/2 cup lemon juice, and 3-4 drops yellow food coloring. A sliced kiwi on top also adds a great touch. Yuuuuuuumy!
Very simple and good. I covered top with blueberries and went very well. Brought it to a meetup and everyone liked it. Very fluffy.
This is an AWESOME recipe! It tastes just like the lemon pie that is served at Chic-fil-A! (just add merangue). Add a little more lemon juice for extra kick. This has a great creamy cheesecake type consistency!
