"Hubby loved it, I thought it a 4 star.I prefer the filling of a lemon meringue pie but this recipe eliminates the calories and fat from the crust so that's a plus. I used all the juice of one lemon and all the zest I could get. This caused it to be a little 'loose' but hubby said that's how he likes it. Nice lemony flavor."
