2 large lemons

4 eggs, well beaten

2 cups sugar


Slice lemons thin as paper, rind and all.  Combine with sugar and mix well.  Let stand 2 hours or preferably overnight, blending occasionally.  Add beaten eggs to lemon mixture, mix well.  Turn into a nine inch pie shell, arranging lemon slices evenly.  Cover with top crust.  Cut several slits near center.  Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the edge of the pie comes out clean.  Cool before serving. Enjoy your Shaker Lemon Pie plain or with a dollop of whipped cream!
