Oh My Lemon Pie

Everyone ate the pie before I could take a picture. It’s that good.

The original recipe came from www.food52.com where they blended the ingredients with an entire Meyer lemon – skin, seeds and all. I had a hard time getting my hands on a Meyer lemon, so I tweaked the recipe to use a standard lemon (more juice, less rind), and it was sweet perfection.  Tastes like a lemon bar pie.  Serve it with a few sprigs of mint and vanilla ice cream, or try it with a shortbread cookie crust. My mom thought it would be nice with toasted coconut on top and coconut ice cream. Enjoy!

Oh My Lemon Pie

– 1 prepared pie crust
– 2 lemons, juiced
– 1 thick lemon slice
– 1 teaspoon lemon zest
– 1.5 cups of sugar
– 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 1-2 pinches of salt
– 1 stick of butter
– 4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth (about one minute). Pour into prepared pie crust and bake 40 minutes, or until lightly brown on top. That’s it!
