Fall is in the air, It is Pie Season!

Our family has a strong pie making tradition, I thought I would share a few of our favorite recipes this month as we get closer to Thanksgiving. We like to use the flaky and delicious Pie Crust Recipe that my Mom, Elaine is famous for. Click here to see it.

Lemon Pie

1 ½ cups sugar
7 Tab. Cornstarch
Dash salt
1 ½ cups hot water
2 beaten eggs
2 Tab. butter
½ cup lemon juice

In a saucepan combine dry ingredients. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, set aside. Measure butter and lemon juice, set aside.  Slowly stir in water to avoid lumps. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat. Stir small amount of hot mixture into beaten egg yolks. Return to the rest of mixture in the pan. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter and slowly stir in lemon juice. Pour into cooled, baked crust. Refrigerate.
