    I'm glad you like the sound of this, my friends! Me too, although I've never made it. I know what you mean about lard, nancy. My grandmother used it a LOT.. truth is, I make my crusts with butter all the time. Since I've never tried to make this, I'm not too sure about comparisons, breezy. I'd like to know the answer to that question also so if anyone tries it before I do, let me know! Thanks.

    Very interesting. Is this like a 1/2 lemon chaffon or custard 1/2 cake pie? Is there something to compare it to? I love lemon. Thanks for the post.

    Just one question... it is personal preference but I cannot seem to bring myself to use lard. I know that and shortening are believed best for crust but again... In your opinion would using butter be just wrong or can I make this and get away with the substitution? I so know the Pennsylvania Dutch use fresh ingredients and make such good food.
