I love everything lemon, so I was so excited about this recipe! I've made it a couple times but have modified the crust. The crust in the recipe is way to hard. Need to put some muscle into it when cutting it. So I added 1/2 cup of oil, one egg, and 3/4 cups water. The batter was pretty thick. I cooked it for 30 minutes and then followed the rest of the recipe. With the modifications. SO much better. I prefer a softer crust and everyone loved it! Definitely saving the recipe!

Forgot to mention, when the crust was done, I used the bottom of a glass to press it down so it wouldn't be too thick. It was still nice and soft when it was ready to eat.
