Zesty Lemon Pie
Shaker Lemon Pie
This old-fashioned pie is made with thinly sliced whole lemons—peels and all. The recipe originated in Shaker communities in areas where the South meets New England and the Midwest. Shaker cooks considered lemons an important part of a healthy diet, even though they were expensive and hard to come by, so they devised this pie to make use of every bit of the fruit. For best results, make with Meyer lemons, and let the fruit macerate overnight (or longer). A mandoline slicer will yield the thinnest lemon slices.

This incredible lemon pie is not only delicious, but healthy too! Its secret healthy ingredient is....cauliflower! That's right. Cauliflower. (Well, and some raw cashews or macadamia nuts.) To make the filling, simply process thawed frozen cauliflower with the soaked nuts, coconut oil, lemon juice, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and salt. Pour onto the oat-and-shredded coconut crust, and freeze until firm.
