In Response to Re: Easy creamy lemon / key lime pie recipe:
Hubby and I were in AZ, visiting our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids. On the way back to the Phoenix airport from Prescott, we stopped at a well-known restaurant for pie. Not only was there lemon pie, but a Tennessee Lemon Pie. Has anyone ever heard of this kind of pie? It look similar to a pecan pie, inthat there was that pitted-looking, glazy kind of surface. There were so many varieties of pie that I decided on another selection but now wish I had tried that lemon pie.

From you description it sounded like a Chess Pie. I looked it up and found a recipe for you.
Tennessee Lemon Chess Pie
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Cups sugar
1 Tb flour
1 Tb cornmeal
1/4 Cup butter, melted
1/4 Cup milk
2 tsp grated lemon zest
1/4 Cup lemon juice
9 inch un baked pie shell
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a bowl combine egg and sugar stir to combine
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Pour into pie shell
Bake for about 55 minutes until set.
From what I have read about other chess pies it is the cornmeal that gives the top the character of a chess pie.
