    With so many people sharing LMP recipes lately I thought I'd throw mine out there, too!

    1.5% FA Cookie
    1% FA Cream Fresh
    2% FA Custard
    4% FA Lemon Sicily
    .75% FA Lime Tahity (Cold Pressed)
    1% FA Meringue
    2% TFA Pie Crust
    3% CAP Vanilla Custard
    .75% FA Vienna Cream

    Needs a couple of weeks for all that FA Lemon Sicily to fall in line. I've also tried it with only FA Custard & I've tried it with only CAP Vanilla Custard. I seem to like this combination best. Keep in mind, I'm mixing max VG.

    The FA Custard has just a touch of lemon taste to me, so it should fit right in.

    Definitely want to try this! Thanks for sharing, I’m just missing the TFA Pie Crust. Any suggestions for subs or you wouldn’t suggest subbing that one?

    Maybe FA Apple Pie at .5-1%?

    From the horse's mouth:
    Adding Cookie to replace part of Apple Pie also helps minimize the apple, so you can get a crust flavor that works well with light fruit flavors.

    That's probably the only way I'd try to sub for it, but I'd recommend getting some of the PC.

    I have not tried it, but it's been on my (rather large) list of recipes by others I'd like to try sometime.
    I've heard reviews good & bad, but it looks interesting.

    I still haven’t gotten the TFA Pie Crust yet, believe it or not I haven’t needed to place an order yet. So instead of waiting I just might try it with the FA Apple Pie as @bobnat as suggested. And put TFA Pie crust on the buy list :D

    When I initially was testing it, it was once a week, which went like this:

    S&V- interesting, but not "good"
    7 days better, but still too lemony
    14 days- very nice, the custard, creams & pie crust are noticeable
    21 days & beyond- even better!

    I mixed max VG, if it matters to you. Let me know what you think, but not for "a couple" of weeks! :D

    Thanks for the steeping notes :) I mixed it at 70vg/30pg. The wait is going to kill me :D I will let you know if it doesn’t kill me first :D (the waiting).

    If it does kill you, just rattle our monitors to let us know how it was.

    Was excited as I read the title and then got very disappointed.

    A recipe that includes most ingredients I hate... Cookie, Vienna, both custards, fresh cream.
    I guess I could sub but it wouldn't be the same. Could try without it but then we're looking at pie crust with lime and lemon lol

    I'm glad tho that a lot of people will love it, thanks for sharing even if its not my cup of tea, still appreciated.

    I wish I could like it, the flavor descriptions sound amazing, sadly there's something in all of them that doesn't agree with my flavor buds lol. Guess I'll be that weirdo around here.

    I'm guessing you used lime to boost the FA lemon and give it more "body".

    That's a really good explanation. :)
    Although nice & upfront, the FA lemon can be a little thin & one dimensional.
