Lemon Cream Pie

Here is a great recipe if you don’t like the tartness in a lemon meringue pie but love the lemon flavor. Growing up we always had a lemon meringue pie for Thanksgiving because it was one of my Dad’s favorite pies. I love lemons but the lemon meringue pies are too tart for me. When I tried this recipe, I thought it was the perfect compromise!  It is also a pretty simple pie to throw together if you are in a pinch or just don’t want to spend a lot of time making a pie. This recipe is a keeper for sure!

Until next time,

Happy Eating!
