Sponge Cake Lemon Pie
From MaryLynn

We had this lemon pie very often as I was growing up;Heritage Recipes Sponge Cake Lemon Pie it was my father's favorite.  Imagine my delight to find the lemon pie in my great grandmother's "receipt book" as a newspaper clipping, circa 1890.  This picture  is of my Great Grandmother Catherine Kinney, Great Aunt Minnie (on the left) and Grandmother Flora Kinney.  This picture was taken in North Dakota Territory about 1886 or 1887, about the time g-grandmother started collecting the recipes.
