Susan Morasca, Cayucos, California, remembers a childhood treat her family called Lemon Chiffon Pie. It was like a cheesecake, but lighter in consistency, almost "bubbly," with a graham cracker crust. It wasn't baked, and Susan thinks it contained lemon gelatin or lemon pudding along with sour cream or cream cheese.

Annalee Ladd, Raymore, Missouri, sends one with the title that Susan remembers.
