The first pie is from Andi Winslow over at The Wednesday Baker and it’s a Luscious Lemon Pie. Stop by and say “hi” and let her know you saw her gorgeous pie. Now a little bit about Andi.
A little about me... I'm a lover of cookies, I am a small town Maine girl who is addicted to sugar. I have a 5 year plan - bake cookies, work in my garden and plant flowers, and feed my wonderful husband Dick
Now that is one great five year plan! Thanks for your pie recipe Andi and here it is.
Luscious Lemon Pie
The Carolina Collection
Jr. League of Fayetteville, North Carolina 1978
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. lemon rind, grated (2 Lemons)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tbsp. butter
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
9 inch pie shell, baked
grated lemon rind (optional)
In a heavy saucepan add the sugar, cornstarch, lemon rind, butter, lemon juice, milk and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat until smooth and very thick, stirring constantly. When mixture comes to a boil remove it from the heat. Cover the saucepan and allow to cool. Then stir in the sour cream and pour mixture into your baked pie shell. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Top with whipped cream and grated lemon rind if desired.
This pie was super easy to make and if it taste as good as it looks, it will be a real winner. I can’t wait to see what the judges think.
DON’T FORGET TO COME BACK & CHECK OUT TOMORROW’S PIE
P.S. Allrecipes is doing their pie countdown emails, so I thought I would share that link with you too at the end of each post.
So, I finally tasted the pie last night, and it is good.
