Menu Description: "Our melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese pie with a tangy lemon topping."

Here's a great double-layered pie with lemon topping covering a creamy cheesecake filling. It's two great pies in one dessert. This creation has been huge seller for Marie Callender's, and I've had nothing but raves from anyone who's tried it -- including a couple high fives and one affectionate rabbit punch. Make the crust from scratch like the pros using the recipe here, or take the easy route with a pre-made graham cracker crust found in the baking aisle. Either way it's pie heaven.

This was pretty good, But not Great! I think the cream cheese filling over powered the lemon filling. Maybe if you double the lemon filling it may balance it all out better. I like Heather's idea with the pie filling -- would seem more like a cheese cake then. But it was very easy and I will make it again just try a few things different next time :)

This is a great recipe. I have made it often the last few years. It is great with canned pie filling instead of the lemon: cherry, blueberry, strawberry...it's all good

This was a great recipe. I used some ready whip on the top of the pie. It would probably work better with cool whip. Great dessert.

I made this for the first time to serve at a bridal shower. The guests cleaned it out in 15 minutes flat! Had to make a second one for my hubby :-) For the shower, I added a little Cool Whip on top and garnished with a mint sprig and strip of lemon peel in the shape of a heart.
