Author Ann H Gabhart Shares Shaker Lemon Pie Recipe — 40 Comments

  1. And it doesn’t have to be necessarily mystery life and death suspense, Gail. Sometimes it’s whether the characters are going to fall in love and if they do admit to being love, whether they can live happily ever after. Or it can be any of a dozen other tense conflicts in the story. I love lemon pie too.

  2. This pie is not your normal lemon pie, but if you like lemon and tart you might just like this pie, Tammy. Let me know if you make it and like it.

  3. That’s the best kind of suspense, Karen, and what makes us keep turning pages in any kind of book. Hope you will give the pie a try.

  4. I love just enough suspense to keep me guessing right up to the end. And I love lemon pie!

  5. I’m like someone else who commented here, Donna. I want to keep the scary suspense in my stories and not in my life. I want good drama in my real life.

  6. That is what keeps us reading, isn’t it, Rachel? The trick for a writer is finding a way to make the reader keep turning pages.

  7. Thank you for sharing the post, Bonnie. I appreciate that. And thinking I couldn’t cut the lemons thin enough is why I haven’t tried to make the pie yet. You’d have to have a very, very sharp nice and I can just see me slicing my finger instead of the lemon! But you should give it a try next time you go to Shaker village. However, if you don’t like tart, you may not like it. First time I ate it, I was greatly disappointed. Then it grew on me.

    I too like to be kept guessing while I’m reading.

  8. Thanks for dropping by, Shirley. I like some suspense as long at it’s not monsters on the other side of the door. 🙂

  9. I hope you will enjoy the story when you get a chance to read it, Javkie. And a piece of pie while you’re reading would be nice!

  10. Grandma’s pie is always better than anyone else’s, Lillian. But you’re right about it being a pretty pie all dressed up with lemon slices.

  11. I like mystery stories, Ann, but I like other type of stories too. The kind that keep me wanting to turn pages to find out what happens next is the best.

  12. The pie is definitely different, Sharrie, but if you like tart you might like it. Maybe mystery in stories is the same. Adds a bit of tartness.

  13. You’ve got a point, Kaye. Suspense doesn’t have to only mean mysteries. The suspense of what happens next needs to me in all stories.

  14. Hope to try the lemon pie someday. I’ve seen it a long time ago and wanted to try it but lost the place I saw the recipe. I saved it in my recipe file this time. I love suspense in a novel especially when it keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens.

  15. The pie looks delish and yes, I do like a little mystery in Amish stories. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  16. The lemon pie looks delicious, but tried it years ago and didn’t like it near as good as my Grandmother’s lemon pie!

  17. Thanks for dropping by, Robin. Some of these days I’m going to see if I can slice those lemons thin enough. 🙂

  18. I enjoy a little suspense in a novel and never read a Gabhart book that I didn’t love!

  19. That’s an interesting pie recipe, Ann. I’d like to try this pie when I next visit Shaker Village; I’m not normally one who enjoys very tart pies, but my curiosity is aroused re: those paper thin-slices and rind in this recipe. I’m wondering how much practice it took to master the art of cutting those paper-thin slices, lol, I couldn’t do it.

    I do enjoy a suspense thread in novels – I like to be kept guessing when I’m reading.

    Shared post!!

  20. I have seen many lemon pie recipes but I don’t recall one where you just slice the lemons real thin and sugar them and let them sit overnight that way and then put the rest of it together and bake it the next day. It looks like something I would like to try!

  21. Yes, I always enjoy a little suspense in a novel – if it is done well, it keeps you guessing until the end.

  22. I love threads of suspense. We all have suspense and drama in our lives and makes the story more “real”.

  23. I like a little mystery mixed into the stories I read too, Diane. Hope you will give my story a try. Thanks for dropping by to check out the lemon pie recipe.

  24. I love some suspense in a novel! All genres of books are interesting to me and The Innocent sounds like a fabulous read. Thank you for the chance to learn more about it Ann and Lyn!

  25. I forgot to answer the question. Yes, I love suspense in a novel. It is because it keeps me reading because I have to see what happens next!

  26. Let me know if you like it, Sunnie. I haven’t actually made the pie, but I keep thinking I will if only I can slice the lemons that thin. I did visit a book club once and the hostess made the lemon pie for us. That was fun. Thanks for dropping by.
