Lemon Pie Recipe by Nannie Woodman
Chubby’s mother Nannie Woodman was an excellent cook, and there are those who well remember the luscious cakes and pies she sold in her bake shop. Here’s a recipe that has seen its way to countless church fairs and family cookouts.
While Nannie always made her pie shell from scratch, you can use a prepared, 9-inch pie shell or follow the pie crust recipe provided by her great-grandson Steve.
