More or less, this is a key lime pie recipe made with lemon zest and juice in a regular pie shell instead of a graham cracker crust. I add the zest for a more intense lemon flavor and I add the juice for a zing. You bake it off, cool it down and top it with plenty of whipped cream. Keep it nice and cold until you are ready to serve. Then cut yourself a big fat piece and enjoy! That’s all there is to it! The hardest part is waiting for it to cool down. And, for everything that is good and holy, use REAL lemon juice and REAL whipped cream! You won’t be sorry!
So, that’s all the info you need to know!
Please pick up some lemons and make this pronto.
And then bring me a piece.
Thank you. :)

Cool pie to room temperature, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled (at least 2 hours.)
Before serving, whip cream with sugar, vanilla and cornstarch* until stiff peaks form. Spread cream over top of pie and garnish with lemon slices.
