I used the word Real in the headline because this is not the lemon pie that we make from that little box. Nope! This is the real McCoy with freshly squeezed lemon juice. For some reason lemons mean spring to me. I guess because my mother always made lemon meringue pies each year for Easter. So, this year, even though it was just Mr. Autumn and I, I followed the family tradition.
I used a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Pies and Cakes book. It was a wedding gift from my third grade teacher, and in June we will celebrate 40 years. I guess it’s safe to say the recipe is tried and true.
