World's Easiest (And Maybe Best) Lemon Pie

Taking a break from the political wars--time to recharge, rethink, and review the sorry state of what passes for political discourse these days.

Here is absolutely the easiest way to make a fantastic lemon pie in about five minutes. My thanks to Wendy for the recipe.

One thin-skin medium lemon, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces, skin and all, seeds removed. Fresh off the tree is best, but for those who don't live in CA, AZ, or FL go to your best produce food store.
4 eggs (I recommend removing the shells, unlike the lemon rind)
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 Stick melted butter (8 TBSP)
1 Tsp vanilla
1 ready made 9 inch pie shell unbaked

In a blender, combine lemon, eggs, butter, sugar, and vanilla and mix at high speed until smooth and creamy. It will seem a bit runny, but will be just fine.

Pour mixture into pie shell.

Bake about 40  minutes at 350 degrees F, until center quits jiggling.

Cool and eat.

For those who prefer more tart, reduce sugar to 1 cup.

Surprise your spouse or sig other or roomie with this one. Guaranteed Brownie points.
