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. ┬áTastes like a lemon bar pie. ┬áServe 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!

Goons Eat Dessert Too

Cooks Illustrated is my favorite place to start for new recipes in general, but particularly for desserts.There are too many ingredients and techniques in this recipe to post the whole thing, but basically, you make the crust, make the lemon custard, and top it off with the meringue.

So pretty!
