Sliced Lemon Pie
This is what the Old West bakers adapted from an old Shaker recipe from Ohio.
This is a quite tart dessert.
5 large lemons
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Skin and remove all white from lemons. Slice thin, remove seeds, and mix with
sugar and salt. Let stand for at least 2 hours.
Add beaten eggs to lemons and mix very well.
Pour into a prepared 8-inch pie crust. Cover with top crust
and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
This texture will be considerably coarser than a modern lemon
Cool in the refrigerator and serve in small slices.
