My family LOVES this pie! It is tart, but we like that. The lemon flavor bowls you over, it is not too sweet, but it's not too intense, either. I agree with previous reviewers who say to use a shortbread crumb crust... it is awesome with this pie whereas graham cracker crust, I think, would just taste wrong. I don't see why people complain about the gelatin.... okay so the texture may not be authentically "mousse" like, but the gelatin holds the pie together and it's not like the texture is bad. I would rather have my pie hold together and be easy to slice, which is what the gelatin does for this pie.
I am making this for Thanksgiving this year, as my 8 year old begged for it. Thanks for a new family favorite!
