Lemon Cream Pie

It seems that people saved recipes for desserts more than anything else.  Maybe it is because we grow up knowing how to make the staples in life: meat and taters.  Dessert is always your time to shine.

This is one of those recipes that was clipped from some anonymous newspaper, and stuffed in the recipe book to be made someday. This recipe states, “Mrs. Dinsmore, we are very grateful for this recipe.  We asked six people to sample it for us when we tried it out in our Test Kitchen. Each of the six pronounced it the best lemon pie she had even eaten.”
