Grandma Abby's Frosted Lemon Pie
This is an old recipe from my Grandmothers recipe collection. It is a double
crusted lemon pie with this sweet dried powder sugar top. My Mom said that she
use to make it for her when she was a little girl and of course Mom made it for
us kids and so on down the line. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the
2 Cups Sugar
½ tsp. Salt
Top and Bottom pastry crust
You will need two teaspoons of grated lemon peal. After grating lemons for their
peal pare them and dispose of the membrane. Cut the lemons into thin slices.
Place lemon slices in a bowl with the lemon peal, sugar, salt and set aside.
Heat JYB oven to 425 degrees
Get pie shells ready ( make your own or use pre-made ) Grandma made her own not
Beat the eggs until frothy and pour over lemon slices and sugar mixture. Pour
into pie shell and cover with the top crust and flute the edges. Bake for 45 to
50 minutes but watch it very close that the edges don't burn before the pie is
done. If over browning occurs cover pie edges with aluminum foil and return to
the over. Just watch it close.
Take a small bowl of powder sugar and
add a few drops of milk to thin it to almost like a sauce consistency. With a
pasty brush the top of the pie with the frosting several times and let dry.
