Through my many years of cooking I have acquired several go to recipes for special occasions. Nana's Lemon Pie is just one of those recipes, when you get a call and one of the kids has invited 2 or 3 of their buddies home for dinner, or maybe the hubby is bringing one of his office buddies for dinner. This is the greatest go to pie recipe.This recipe has amazing flavor and it very easy to put together  and it serves up like you have been working on  a dessert all day!

  7. I( made this lemon pie yesterday and it was amazing! I served ours with fresh cut up strawberries - so good! The filling was like lemon curd and wasn't too sweet nor too puckery. Absolutely perfect - I will be making it again soon!
