Creamy Triple Lemon Pie

Over the weekend, I made a concerted effort to get caught up on quite a few lingering tasks...without getting to all of them, unfortunately.

But I also wanted to get at least one dessert made. My first choice wasn't doable because I'd let myself run out of cream cheese, somehow, so I made an alternative creation that was in the same vein: creamy triple lemon pie.

It's been quite a while since I made this, which means I'd not yet put together how close this is to the awesome Atlantic Beach Pie that is well-loved amongst the Roediger House patrons. The key difference here is the crust, made with lemon wafers, a bit of sugar, and some lemon zest. (Atlantic Beach Pie's unique flavor depends in no small measure on the use of pulverized Ritz crackers in its crust.)

I might have boosted the lemon flavor beyond the sweet-and-tart balance, but the crew on hand last Sunday night didn't seem to let that affect the speed or rate of consumption.
