Lemon Cream Pie

Lemon Cream Pie

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 PieChocolate Cream Pie, or Dulce De Leche Icebox Pie.

Lemon Cream Pie


  • 2 cans (14 ounces, each) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 recipe Graham Cracker crust, baked and cooled
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Then whisk in egg yolks.
  2. Pour filling into crust. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until edges are set but center still jiggles when shaken. Let pie cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour or up to 48 hours.
  3. When ready to serve, make sweetened whipped cream. Using a stand mixer or electric beaters, beat cream, sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pie up to 2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
