This Lemon Cream Pie will knock your socks off! With a perfect made-from-scratch pie crust, homemade lemon filling, and oodles of sweet whipped cream, this phenomenal dessert will become a summer time tradition!
Growing up, my siblings and I would always beg my mom to make this Lemon Cream Pie all summer long! Then, when Thanksgiving time rolled around, we’d do the same. It had to make an appearance at every major event and gathering. Make it and you’ll immediately see why!
My mom has always been the queen of homemade goodies. She takes great pride in crafting the perfect pie crust with lots of love. And then she fills it with an amazing sweet and tangy lemon pudding, never from the box. But it just wouldn’t be complete without a big fluffy pillow of whipped cream!
When I visited my family a few weeks ago, my mom asked if there were any food requests, and I immediately pleaded with her to make this Strawberry Banana Cream Pie and of course today’s Lemon Cream Pie!
I think it tasted even better the second day! The flavors really came together as it sat in the fridge.
Of course you can take the easy way out and buy a pre-made crust, but I recommend you try this Perfect Pie Crust at least once! I bet you’ll never go back once you do! But please, please make the lemon filling from scratch! It’s SO much better than out of the package!
Pie making really is such an art. I think pies are about the prettiest desserts out there! That fluted crust and those beautiful layers…I just wanted to sit and stare at it all day when it was done! But my taste buds forced me to cut into it.
It’s common to add a meringue topping on lemon pie, but since I’m not a huge meringue person, I love to sub in whipped cream! I really prefer it.
Although this pie doesn’t have perfectly precise lines when cut, I love how the pudding oozes. It just begs you to grab that fork quick and dig right in!
You’re going to fall in love at bite one! I can’t wait for you to sink your teeth into this!
