"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 f..." See moreor 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 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.
