"This recipe was easy to make and tasted great. I like to chill it for at least 4-6 hours so that it thickens up and cuts nicely. It is a good make-ahead dessert."

"Cherry-lemon icebox pie is a family favourite in our home and one we make whenever we have all the ingredients. The pie crust is also made by hand, as we choose to do it that way. It's delicious and one we love any time we want a special meal."
