This pie was certainly one of Mom’s specialties.  Everyone loved it and asked for it.  Recipe makes 2 medium pies.

2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
4 egg yolks (save egg whites)
juice of 2 lemons (6 Tbsp. lemon juice)
4 Tbsp. flour

Beat together ingredients real well then add 2 Cups milk. In another bowl (with mixer) beat 4 egg whites till stiff, then add the egg whites to the lemon mixture. Pour into 2 unbaked pie crusts. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Mom had this note on the recipe:  “This was a recipe given to me by a dear neighbor (Renna) who became very close to our family, while the kids were young. She was a very good cook. When I make this pie for the church, it is a big hit!”
