Lemon Icebox Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
A KITCHEN DISASTER: 1. WARNING: PHOTO IS MISLEADING! A traditional, round pie is shown, but the recipe calls for a 9 X 13 inch baking dish. Without reading the recipe, I glanced at the photo and included a pre-packaged, deep-dish graham cracker pie crust on my shopping list. Sure enough, I had about 2 cups of extra filling leftover, which I stored in seperate containers to be eaten like pudding. Who cooks a "pie" in a 9 X 13 inch baking dish? 2. It gets worse: FILLING DID NOT SET! This after 24 hours refrigeration. Obviously there is too much of a liquid ingredient, which one I'm not sure. I was very careful with the measurements, careful to correctly translate the outdated listed quantities (evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk are available today in 12 and 10 oz. cans, respectively, not 5 oz.). The mixture wasn't "firm" as stated. The end result was a gloopy mess, less set than pudding. The leftover filling I had reserved never set, either, after days of refrigeration. The taste was good, deepening the mystery of which ingredient was over-quantified. So many cooks have had setting failure with this recipe that it should be removed from the site.
