"For the second time I've made this pie, both times with rave reviews. The only change I made is adding a little lemon juice to the whipped cream.

Next time I will add the sour cream before it's completely cool, so it will be more incorporated. Even done as written its amazing, and not overly hard"

"This is my favorite pie to make!!! It is so good and easy to make. I like mine with a normal pie cuts instead of gram cracker. And for all the people who say get a premade crust and use an instant pudding it's not the same!"

"We loved this pie. It was creamy with just the right mixture of sweet and tart. I made two changes. I substituted 1/2 cup of maple syrup instead of the sugar, and I added a tsp of cream of tarter to the whipped cream since I wanted it to hold its shape for a couple of days."

"Hubby called this pie a "home run" and that was without whipped cream on top. No need for extra calories/fat. Excellent flavor and so easy to make."

"I made this pie last night and came out so so i would actually cut back on the amount of lemon juice and not use the lemon zest... it was just to lemonie for my taste buds ... maybe in addition to the sour cream thrown in a tub of cool whip"

"We found another version of this in a little local grocery store in Lincoln City, OR and I had to search for the recipe so I could make it once I got home. I found this one and knew it would be good, and it didn't disapoint us. This is the best pie EVER!! I have already made one with a homemade cookie crumb crust and it was awesome. I am making it with Trader Joe's pie crust tonight and my husband is already drooling. Make this....it's worth it!!"
