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.

George Andrews, Macomb Township, Michigan, sent a recipe that was his great-aunt's. George says he grew up eating this pie, and he still occasionally makes it for family gatherings. "It is the first dessert to go," he says. "It's so light and airy, like eating a cloud."
