In Response to Re: Who loves pie?:
I do love pies....however.....for the life of me, I cannot bake a good pie. Either the crust is soggy, too brown, too grainy, or just yukky!! Thank goodness there is a great bakery just about a mile from us, and we frequent it often!! My favorite pies are lemon, and of course, strawberry/rhubarb! YUM!!

I found an amazing recipe for a lemon pie. The show Americas Test Kitchen or it could have been Cooks Country sis a Shaker Lemon Pie. It used the whole lemon, peel and all. Very lemony pie. If I can find my recipe I will post it, I think I posted once before but well worth a repeat.
As to the crust again either Americas's Test Kitchen or Cooks Country suggested using vodka in place of some of the water. You can add more liquid because the vodka evaporates and you get a light flaky crust that is easy to work with because of the extra liquid.
