These were just OK. I used egg beaters to reduce the cholesterol, and the filling tasted just so-so. The crust was good though, although 3/8 c butter is an odd measurement, isn't it? (it's 6 Tbls for anyone that doesn't want to have to translate cups to tablespoons :-)

I like to have something lemon for dessert on Easter, and since I don't do meringue well I decided to try this in place of lemon meringue pie. I expected something more like a pie, which this is not. However, my review is based on the actual product, not my expectations. I thought the taste of the lemon was excellent--nice and tart. Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't find the crust to be crumbly. I think the secret is cutting the butter in well and pressing the crumbs down firmly to form the crust. I thought the crust was a little too sweet. Personally, I don't think the lemon layer is thick enough in relation to the crust, and if I made this again I might double the filling amount.

Overall, I found this recipe to be quite good. It is a perfect blend of sugar and lemon. Not too sweet or too tart. My only complaint would be that it was not clear how much filling there would be. I completely covered the pie pan(which is about 2" deep and 9" across) with the crust. When I put the filling in it only reached halfway. So for further reference to others, the crust will only need to cover half to two-thirds of the pie pan. Other than that, this is a truly delicious recipe!
