Lemon Cream Pie

If you love lemon, then this is the pie for you.  The flavor is not overpowering, but it is absolutely amazing!  The filling is wonderful even by itself, so you could serve it as a custard on the side, if desired.  Still, the entire pie is absolutely delicious.  You could serve it with some whipped cream, but I personally did not find that necessary.  Enjoy
