    I'm sure what you're thinking of is lemon sponge pie/custard. I have my grandmother's recipe at home and will post it for you later tonight.

    This pie has a puddinglike bottom layer and a cakey top layer. You will see it on the menu in many PA Dutch restaurants and diners.

    LEMON SPONGE PIE

    Pie crust for 9 inch pie pan
    3/ 4 cup sugar
    1/ 4 cup melted butter
    1/ 4 cup flour
    Grated rind and juice of 2 lemons (no white part)
    1 cup milk (whole milk - not low fat or skim)
    2 large eggs, separated
    1/8 tsp. salt

    Mix sugar, butter, flour, lemon juice and rind, milk salt and egg yolks in large bowl. Stir with a whisk until yolks are thoroughly mixed. (Mixture will look curdled but that’s normal.) Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into lemon mixture.

    Bake crust at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Pour lemon mixture into piepan and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until top bounces back when touched with your finger and is a golden to medium brown. Cool completely before cutting. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

    Can also be baked without the crust in a piepan or individual custard cups. Pour lemon mix in them, set in a pan. Pour in hot water to go 1 inch up the sides and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes until done as per test for pie.

    For Rubyrose Thank you very much that's it . I remember the two older ladies who first served it to me said I would be surprised at the mess that went into the oven . You wouldn't think it would make a thing.. looking forward to returning the favor,
