OOPS! I tried this recipe and the lemon filling did not thicken enough. After a second try, I checked for similar recipes and found that there is usually 3 beaten egg yolks added after the filling is removed from the heat and then it is cooked over low heat, stirring constantly until it boils 1 minute before it is cooled. Since we are watching cholesterol at our house, I cooled the lemon mixture, then stirred in 1/2 cup egg substitute and brought it to a boil, stirring constantly, and boiled 1 minute while stirring and it thickened to an appropriate texture for pie filling. It is a delicious pie.
