I added a teaspoon of fresh lemon zest to the filling. After the pie had cooled, I spread Cool Whip over the top. I swear, I could eat a vat of this lemon pie filling. It's like a mixture of lemon curd and the filling from lemon meringue pie (which is the same thing, I guess). Delicious!

I used the juice from regular lemons and one tangerine,to make it like Meyers lemons, since I could not get them. Not sure what happened, but the filling was so thin (like water) that when I poured it into the pie shell, the pastry must have absorbed the liquid. After cooking and setting, the pie was about 1/2 inch deep. The crust was soggy and stuck to the pie pan. I gave it three stars, because despite how horrible it looked, the taste of the filling was delicious. Will have to figure out something else to make with the filling.

This was very tasty! I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. I think the filling should have had at least 1 tsp of cornstarch (to help thicken it) but otherwise it was a great pie. Reminds me of a lemon meringue minus the meringue.

Very easy to make and also very tasty. Could be a little tarter, perhaps. I wonder if it might taste good with a shortbread crust instead. But as-is, an excellent, easy choice.

Turned out great and SUPER easy! Having never made a lemon pie before, I chose this recipe because it seemed simple and had good reviews. I followed the recipe, except I used regular lemons and an electric mixer on high speed. This recipe is a keeper for me!

Made this PALEO friendly and it was delicious. I made my own coconut flour crust and followed the recipe for the filling with organic ingredients. Then topped it with whipped coconut cream sweetened with a little maple and vanilla. Delicious, low-glycemic and gone!

Really loved it. A neighbor gave me the Meyer lemons. I have never even had a lemon pie before. I loved it just the way it was written,nothing added. Just the right amount of lemon. The sugar is the right amount to bring out the lemon flavor not mask it. I only wish I could master whipped cream!
