Lemon Cream Pie

Who loves lemon pie?  You do!  Me?  Meh, it’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but I’m a chocolate gal.

Lemon Pie

So why even bother? What am I doing making anything but chocolate bombs this or chocolate lava thats?

I bother because both my MIL and Girl love them some lemony desserts.  Lemon + heavy whipping cream + a graham cracker crust = love, baby.

This recipe is brought to you by Bunny’s Warm Oven. She hit it out of the ball park with this one, so I made it for Easter and it was a big hit!

You can definitely make your own crust for this pie. Or, keep it easy, with a pre-made.

So stinkin’ simple!  OMT loves simple and I know you do to.

Here’s my little secret: I use my own homegrown lemon juice from my Meyer lemon trees.

~faint~

As soon as my lemons are ripe, I squeeze them, pour into ice cube trays and freeze. I never have to buy store bought and it never goes to waste because, it’s frozen.  Pick out a few cubes from the freezer, defrost and done.

Delish.

If I want lemon bars in the middle of winter, if I want the taste of summer when it’s frigid outside…DONE!

Don’t get me wrong, lemon juice from store bought lemons is perfect for this recipe.  Just giving you a head’s up, if you want to kick thangs up a notch, get thee to a nursery in February and buy some lemon trees!  You won’t regret it.

Happy Whipping Up This Easy Pie, Y’all!
