I tried this recipe several times. The taste is great, but it never thickened. I would love for someone to post a fix to this. Could using real lemons botch the recipe?

This is a fantastic pie. I call it a lemon ice box pie. It is not a lemon meringue pie! My mother made this pie for me all through my childhood, and now I make it for my family. I always double the recipe and make it in a long glass pan. Oh, by the way I use a box of vanilla wafers for the crust and crumble the wafers as a filler for crust. Additionally, I use fresh lemon juice. I just love this pie.

With freshly squeezed lemon juice this rates 5 stars. I can't imagine whey the recipe doesn't call for fresh juice instead of that awful bottled stuff that is so bitter and harsh. Lemons are available year round and are really not that hard to squeeze.
