This lemon cream pie is a new favorite! It’s easy to make and still so impressive — perfect for beginning and experienced bakers alike.
You’ll need just three ingredients for the graham cracker crust, three for the lemon filling, and three more for the sweetened whipped cream. Easy as pie, right? If you keep graham crackers and sweetened condensed milk in your pantry, along with lemons, eggs, butter and whipped cream in your fridge, you can whip this up without even making a trip to the grocery store!
Although the pie only requires 20 minutes in the oven, you will need at least 2 hours to let it chill. So this lemon cream pie is a great one to make a day or two before serving. When you are ready to serve the pie, top with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with lemon zest if desired.
This pie would be lovely on an Easter table, for Mother’s Day, or even Christmas! With a buttery graham cracker crust, tart lemon filling, and sweet clouds of whipped cream on top, this is a pie you can enjoy on any occasion.
For a gluten free version, simply use a gluten free cookie in place of graham crackers for the crust. Looking for some other pie ideas? Try our Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Cream Pie, or Dulce De Leche Icebox Pie.
