Meet the Cook: This pie is a nice light and refreshing finish to a summer picnic or patio supper. I like that it can be made ahead. Married for 35 years, I've always enjoyed cooking. We have two grown sons and three small granddaughters. -Judith Wilke, Dousman, Wisconsin

"PS, I mean I double the whole lemon mix--not just the lemon ingredient!"

"I can't believe no one has rate this yet! It is the BEST EVER dessert, lemon pie, etc. I make this frequently for guests as it is so impressive. I have never NOT been asked for the recipe! I hate to give it out though as it is such a star! Seriously though, this is incredible and worth the time. I usually double the lemon or the lemon layers are very thin. The lemon is far richer than normal lemon pie, so it isn't as good if you substitute as store bought mix. Also, don't quadruple this and use it to make traditional lemon pie! Way too sweet then!!!"
