I am a "LMP" fiend. The secret to a spectacular never-fail LMP is using 6 eggs. Once I made this version by Harriett Westman from "Blue Ribbon Winners: America's Best State Fair Recipes", this became my signature dessert. I adjust my portion size to the number of WW points left for the day; I calculate 1/8 of a pie as 10 points. Please allow 4 hours for cooling before serving. With 6 egg yolks, this is indeed a rich Southern custard filling with lemon juice added. For a more pronounced lemon flavor, use juice from up to 5 medium-size lemons, and reduce the water correspondingly; I have only made the standard recipe, which our family likes a lot.
