Mama, not just because I made it. But I believe that is one of the best pies I have ever eaten. The lemon slices didn't add much. Just looked nice. Doing it over, I would cut the lemon slices in half, and put them on the out side. Leaving the center open. Thanks. CF

Would you be offended if I were to ask you to make this pie one more time but to make an slight adjustment to it?

Substitute orange for the lemon - and call me! I love orange pies too!
