Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The filling for Mim's lemon pie was referenced without additional baking instructions such as pouring it into a baked crust & adding/lightly browning the egg whites. This may have implied that she just poured the lemon filling into a prepared crust with or without the egg white topping, or perhaps she topped the cooled pie with whipped cream. I adore thinking about the possibilities!
