This pie is a little plain. Any jam or berry sauce spooned on top will add visual interest and flavor appeal.

This is a great pie and very easy to make. I omitted 1/4 cup milk and added 1/4 cup extra lemon juice, since I prefer a tart pie. Turned out perfect in every way ...

Excellent pie! I reduced sugar to 3/4 cup and added an extra tablespoon of lemon juice. A walnut crumb crust made this pie exceptional. Thanks, Mary Ann.

Very good pie! I didn't change a thing and was very pleased with the results, as were my family! The lemon custard came out perfectly, and in fact would be great on its own or in a parfait with some berries and fruit rather than just in the pie! I will definitely be making this again!

This is so very tasty! I followed some of the other suggestions and reduced the milk to 3/4 cup and increased the lemon juice to 1/2 cup. I also knew my family would not care for the lemon zest in the pie filling, so I added it to the crust instead. (I made a graham cracker crust). It was quite lemony, but got even more so after being refrigerated overnight. It definitely satisfied my craving for a lemon meringue-type pie without all the extra work.

This is quite a good pie. It is better the next day when the lemon flavor is more intense.

This recipe was excellent. Very easy to make. I decreased milk and increased lemon juice by 1/4 cup each as per another suggestion and am glad I did, I don't think it would have been very lemony if I hadn't. I also made in a graham crust. It is chilling in my refridgerator right now and I can't wait for dessert!!! Definitely a keeper.
