Arizona Sunshine Lemon Pie

I found this recipe in the newspaper. The lady that used to do the Smitty's commercials has the job I want. She writes a short article on a recipe from someone in Phoenix and publishes it. This pie is like a pie version of lemon squares. It has the same consistency as a lemon square. The pie is very lemony, so I highly recommend making some whipped cream to balance the tartness. That being said, I thought it was pretty tasty. And how often do you get to make your pie filling by throwing everything in a blender, including lemon rind? The recipe recommended getting a large lemon from your or your neighbor's tree. I was lucky enough to get such a lemon. It was huge. I am sure grocery store lemons will work just fine.

Arizona Sunshine Lemon Pie

1 large lemon
4 eggs
8 T butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1&1/2 cups sugar
1 unbaked pie crust
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut lemon into small chunks and remove seeds. In a blender or food processor, blend lemon, eggs, butter, vanilla and sugar until smooth and creamy. It should be fairly runny. Pour into pie crust. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.
