“When life gives you lemons …..”

After years of growing two lemon trees in large containers, we finally have a decent crop of lemons and I am frantically trying to come up with recipes that call for lemons. One such recipe comes from a fairly old Marshall Texas recipe book and was submitted by Elsie (Mrs. Cleveland) Heard who passed away in 2010. Cleveland and I were in Lions Club together and I seem to recall this pie showing up at some pot luck dinner we had back some many years ago.

Our granddaughter, Raegan, is proof that this is a “child friendly” recipe. Raegan loves this pie and I really enjoy the two of us preparing and cooking it together when she is here visiting; It is going in the family cookbook as “Raegan’s Lemon Chess Pie”!
