Lemon Chess Pie

I have to be careful; I could make this delicious pie every week! Simple to prepare, easy-to-follow instructions, delicious results--what more could anyone want? I must confess I did not use the specified sour cream pie crust, but rather Classic Pie Crust (Classic Pie Crust, Idiot Proof Step-By-Step Photo Tutorial) as that has now become my favourite. Otherwise, this was prepared exactly as written. I was so pleased with this pie and was particularly delighted as I watched my family wolf down their slices. I much preferred this at room temperature or even a little warm, but my husband found it enjoyable even straight from the fridge. Thanks for another delicious winner!
