Bi-Partisan Pie

Yes, food should never make you have to take sides.  However, I don't believe in changing the titles from recipes as I found them.  I don't really know if our former president really has eaten this pie, let alone if it's his favorite.  All I know is that this is my new favorite pie.  It's easy, as, well, pie.  And, it's the perfect blend of tart and sweet. It tastes like a lemon bar in pie form.  You won't be able to leave it alone no matter your political leanings.



1 (9 in. pie shell)
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
5 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons lemon zest


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and milk.  Add flour, cornmeal, lemon juice, and lemon zest.  Mix until smooth.  Pour mixture into pastry shell.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until set in center.
