Lemon Pie

Lemon Pie

Shaker lemon pie is an iconic American dessert that traditionally features thinly sliced whole lemons macerated in sugar overnight, which results in a filling that is chewy, bitter, sour, and sweet all at the same time. We've updated this pie with grated lemon rind for a smoother filling.
