Easy and delicious, Member lynneallison

Let me just say that I made this pie in a dorm kitchen on a college student's budget. And it was still delicious. This pie is really easy to make and does not require many ingredients, so if you like lemon flavored sweet treats, you should definitely give this recipe a try. The only thing I will say against the recipe is that it took 45-50 minutes to set at 325 degrees rather than 30-35. My mother is from Southern Georgia, and this chess pie would have been up to her standards. So if that doesn't confirm that it's awesome...I don't know what will.
