Sour Cream Lemon Pie


I am a sucker for all things lemon.
For example:

Lemon-Lavender Yankee candles.
 Lemon Drop cocktails.
Lemon yogurt.
Lemon Mambas.
Lemon Poppy seed muffins.
I also appreciate that my dishwasher detergent and my dusting spray come in the flavor of lemon.

 So the other day, I was overcome with the many blog posts that I had clicked upon which were sharing delicious baked goods.  I decided there wasn't two ways around it.  I had to join the madness, get in the kitchen and bake to my heart's content. 

As it now appears, I was feeling all sorts of yellow on Sunday. 
Possibly the reason I chose to wear my new yellow frock
and whip up this delicious 

Sour Cream Lemon Pie. 

Friends, it really doesn't get much better than this.  Well, it could if you aren't particularly fond of lemony treats, but today we aren't talking about the things we don't like. 



Wallah.

The evolution of the best tasting lemon pie you have ever laid your eyes on.
Now I'll hand over the details:

1. Bake and cool 9 inch pie crust.

2. Prepare filling:

1 T. lemon zest
Juice of 1 lemon (1/4 C.)
3 T. lightly heaping corn starch
1 C. milk
1 C. sugar
3 egg yolks

Mix ingredients in saucepan and stir constantly until thick. 
Fold in 1 C. of sour cream.  Mix well and pour into a cooled baked pie crust.

3. Prepare topping:

1 C. whipping cream
2 T. powdered sugar
1 T. instant vanilla pudding mix

Beat until fluffy.  Top onto cooled pie. 
Chill for at least one hour; longer will ensure that your pie cuts and serves beautifully.

4. Enjoy!!

O.K. So I was going to tell you that the pictures of you baking were so cool and then I saw the final photo of the pie. Oh. My. Gosh. That looks so good and I too, am a fan of all things lemon so I will definitely be trying this. I also know that Jeannie is a fabulous cook so I do not doubt it when you said it was the best tasting lemon pie. Also, we must be on the same wave length because I made a lemon pasta chicken tomatoey thing for dinner on Monday night. Have a wonderful day. Oh and by the way I am coming to visit you on the 29th and will be arriving back to the SLC airport on 8/6. Talk to you soon.

Ladies--whip her up and let me know what you think!

Ambs--Your pasta sounds good. You'll have to let me in on the recipe. I'm always looking for new editions to the dinner menu. As for your visit, it will be wonderful. I can hardly wait! xo

Ooh, yum! How about pink lemonade or a half & half — half lemon iced tea and half lemonade? That's my favorite! Cute blog :)

Thanks for visiting my blog; I am glad that you stopped by and appreciate that you took the time to look at it. I enjoyed looking at yours again as well--the overall look of your blog really goes along with this particular entry, given the yellow. I enjoyed reading through it! Hopefully you will stop by later to see where my red bag will end up next. :)

Thank you again!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
