Coffee lemon pie

We’ve all heard of lemon pies but what about coffee lemon pies? This recipe is so sweet and has that great coffee taste in it too.

My grandma gave me this recipe and it’s an absolute winner every time. I remember eating it in her kitchen while we giggled at my granddad snoring.

Why not make it for your friends or family this weekend?
