Arizona Sunshine Lemon Pie

At 23 I hardly knew how to make pancakes, tomato and mozzarella ...

Jerome de Oliveira was the world champion in confectionery.

The youngest world champion in the world.

He is 31 and now has two stores, one in Cannes and one in Cagnes-sur-Mer.

 Nice surprise to find the recipe in special issue #2 of Fou de P√Ętisserie magazine.

The great power of this pie, in addition to the divine creamy lemon, is this shortbread you don't even imagine how to cry and what it's all-without-ability-to-stop-until-willing-to-do-two.
