Luscious Lemon Cream Pie

Take care of that sweet tooth craving with this Luscious Lemon Cream Pie recipe from none other than Pillsbury. Lemon cream pie and lemon pie, in general, are one of the most popular pie flavours out there for people. Lemon pie recipes are right up there with apple pie recipes and cherry pie recipes. There is just something about the way that something as tart as a lemon tastes when combined with the sweetness of sugar. If you love lemon meringue pie, then you will be sure to love this Luscious Lemon Cream Pie recipe! Pie is a dessert that most everyone can agree on. For people who are not really a fan of the heavier recipes like cakes with loads of icing on them, a pie can be a nice fruity alternative to the heaviness of a cake or other kinds of dessert.

This lemon cream pie recipe calls for a pre-made Pillsbury dough crust that can be found in the refrigerator section of your grocery store, along with all of the other Pillsbury pre-made dessert and biscuit options. Pillsbury has premixed dough for chocolate chip cookies, croissants, cinnamon rolls, bread rolls, biscuits, turnovers, and more. These types of pre-made desserts make it so easy to whip up a batch of cookies or biscuits in no time flat, with so much ease. A normal pie pastry recipe can be somewhat difficult for a beginner baker, but with the Pillsbury pre-made pie crusts, you can make a pie very easily, and the pre-made pastry dough actually makes a very nice and flaky pie crust.

The only other ingredients that are needed for this lemon cream pie recipe are condensed milk, a few lemons for the zest and the juice, whipping cream and yellow food colouring to enhance the colour of the lemon pie filling. But it will have a little bit of a yellow hue to it because of the lemon zest that is added into the mix. You bake the pie crust first, according to the directions on the package of the Pillsbury pie crust. Then the filling part of the recipe gets put together and the whipping cream gets whipped up. The lemony pie filling goes into the pie crust once it is finished baking, and then the whipping cream gets folded in as well to make it extra creamy, it is a cream pie recipe after all! The pie gets refrigerated for approximately three hours so it can set. When it is ready to be served, some more whipped cream is placed on each slice of lemon pie before it is served up to enjoy!

That is it! What an extremely simple recipe to whip up to have a lemony dessert to serve at a party, or after dinner. This is a great alternative recipe to a lemon meringue pie recipe. Lemon meringue pies can be a little tricky because you have to make the meringue to go on top. Meringue is not too tough to make, but again, to a beginner baker, it might be more then they would like to do. So this is why the whipped cream is a great alternative and still tastes just as amazing. Try out this awesome recipe and more on the Pillsbury website!
