    Lemon Pie

    Citrusy lemon, creamy whipped cream and a crunchy graham cracker crust come together to build a silky, quick and easy lemon pie. The sturdy crust and thick filling hold up well when cutting, so each slice has that beautiful presentation of a golden yellow filling with white cream on top. Reserve some lemon zest to sprinkle over the whipping cream for an eye-catching garnish. —Angela Lively, Conroe, Texas
