Pie # 24 Sour Cream Lemon Pie


The LAST PIE is from Kelli  who says this about her pie.  "This pie is kind of a legend in my family. When we were kids, my mom entered it in a "Country Women" magazine pie competition, and it won grand prize! True story. I'm not even trying to bias the judges." You can check out all of Kelli’s awesome creations over at easy peasy lemon squeezy.


1 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1/2 c lemon juice
1 c milk
1 c whipping cream
3 1/2 tbs cornstarch
1 tbs lemon rind
3 egg yolks
1 c sour cream


Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan on the stove. Whisk in the lemon juice, rind, and egg yolk. Add the butter and while it melts, mix in the milk. Cook over medium heat. Let it bubble for at least 2 minutes until it gets thick. Add the sour cream when the lemon pudding has cooled completely. Pour into baked pie shell and top with whipped cream. Best served completely chilled.


This pie is very easy to make, and super yummy to eat.  Kelli recommends eating it for breakfast and I couldn’t agree more!
