    I love this pie! I served it at a family dinner and everyone loved it. It is light and creamy - just perfect for warm weather. I did make one change to the recipe. Instead of rolling out the dough into a pie dish as the recipe recommended, I just used pre-made pie shells. It made things a lot easier. You can either use 2 standard-sized pie shells or one deep-dish pie shell, depending on how thick you want your pie to be.

    The lemon filling was delicious; however I felt the ready made refrigerated pie dough did it no justice. This filling deserves a homemade pie crust!

    I followed the directions exactly how they were written. Instead of covering the whole pie with whipped topping I drizzeled a small amount of blueberry sauce on top and then a dollup of whipped topping. It was just wonderful. Will make again and again

    This pie was great! It didn't feel like I was eating "light" dessert at all. It would also be really good with graham cracker crust- I think that's what I'll try the next time I make this. Definitely recommended! http://meganskitchenadventures.blogspot.com/2011/04/lemon-cream-pie.html

    This is the best lemon cream pie I have ever had. The filling is thick and creamy and delicious. I will be serving this again!

    This was good the day I made it, and excellent the day after once it had time to chill and get really firm! The lemon custard was outstanding, and the presentation was really nice. I served this to guests, and it got rave reviews though the filling hadn't quite firmed up yet. It does deserve a homemade crust, but I was strapped for time and the refrigerated dough did the trick in a pinch. definitely a keeper recipe.

    I made this for a neighborhood get together last weekend and it was well received. Due to time issues, I used a graham cracker crust I had on hand. The filling had a lovely, light lemon flavor - not too tart. I wish I had more time for it to chill as the filling was still a little soft when we ate it, but there weren't any leftovers to check the next day. I will definitely make it again.

    This pie was fantastic. Next time I'll put in 3 teaspoons of the rind as it wasn't as lemony as I like. I don't know what I did wrong with the piecrust as it shrank but I covered the sides with the pie filling. I used the whipped topping in a can and sprayed the filling until it looked good. A definite repeat.

    This doesn't taste like a CL recipe, according to my teenagers. The only tweak I made was to add a few drops of yellow food coloring as it looked a bit anemic, ie not lemony enough, but the flavor is terrific. I rarely give 5 stars, so this is a great review for me.

    taste was good, texture nice, but it didn't have the lemony taste that i prefer. i know this is a lightened pie, but the fat-free whipped topping did not seem to do the filling justice.

    I couldn't get enough rind out of my lemon so I was a little worried. Then, it tasted a little bland when it was at room temperature, so i worried even more. I also thought maybe a graham cracker crust would be better than pillsbury. But everyone at the party loved it and asked for the recipe! The lemon flavor came out really nice once it was chilled.

    Very nice, tasty and smooth. 6 WW Pts plus per 1/8 made with fat free cream cheese and fat free cool whip.
