DOUBLE LEMON CREAM PIE
Crust:
1/3 c butter
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 c chopped, toasted walnuts

Cut butter into flour. Add nuts and form a ball. Press into bottom and sides of a pie pan. Bake at 350 for 15 min. (mine took almost 25 minutes). Cool on rack.

Filling #1
8 oz cream cheese at room temp
1 c powdered sugar
1 c heavy cream, whipped and lightly sweetened
1-1/2 heaping T lemon zest
1 T lemon juice
Blend cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in rest and spread over cooled crust. Refrigerate.

Filling #2
1-1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1-1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1-1/2 tbsp (heaping) fresh chopped lemon zest
3 egg yolks, beaten to light lemon yellow
Mix all except water in the top of a double boiler. Add boiling water slowly, whisking madly until all is incorporated.
Cook approximately 10 minutes, whisking frequently. When thickened to a pudding-like consistency, take off heat and add 1 tbsp butter and whisk it in. Cool and spread over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate and just before serving, spread a layer of lightly whipped cream over the top of the pie.
