  • I would recomend that the lemon juice be folded into the mixture to prevent the filling from breaking. The acid needs a chance to congeal the fats for a better texture.

  • I learned to make this pie in home ec in high school 50 years ago. It has been one of my favorites since then. Always easy to make when you need a quick dessert.
