Lemon pie with cookies

This pie, for all mexicans (at least as far as I know) is a total classic. It is something so easy to do and so good that even a kid could do it, if an adult helps out with the blender that is.

We grew up surrounded by a lot of cooking, the kitchen is our parents´ house´s heart. My mom has always liked cooking, and there always was some type of dessert, it was her way of making something to comfort us and at least is healthier.

In our apple pie recipe we mentioned our mom had a few recipes that were her go-to´s like that apple pie, and our mom´s cheesecake, well this is the dessert our father made for us. I still remember how it was: saturday noon, he would come home from work and takes us all to eat lunch and then to the movies (a tradition) and then to the supermarket. And once home he would take the ingreduents to make this recipe out of the bags and ask us if we wanted to help him make this pie, my sister and I would jump of excitement. He would do do the mixture and we would place the cookies, and at the end we would take turns to lick the remaining mixture out of the blender.
