I tried the lemon pie and I loved it!!! I usually think most lemon pies are too tart, but the cream cheese and sugar made this just right!

The pie was wonderful, Lane! It received rave reviews from Nathan and all of his extended family. Even the kids loved it, and Nathan's mom said it was the perfect light dessert for the summer. I love your blog! You are helping me win over Nathan's family:).
