This Sour Cream Lemon Pie is the perfect summer pie with a creamy and tart flavor and buttery pie crust.
My friend called me up last week and pleaded with me to make some sort of citrus pie on my blog. She was craving a taste of summer, and that craving hit me too. She requested a Lemon Meringue Pie, but I had recently tried a Sour Cream Lemon Pie from the bakery section at the local grocery store and it was so good.
So good in fact that I had to re-create it and share it with you.
It was actually really easy to make. The hard part was waiting for it to chill completely in the fridge.
I used a pre-made frozen pie crust to cut down on my prep time. My husband casually asked me, “Shouldn’t you be making your own pie crust?” To which I calmly and sweetly(?) responded, “I’m not Martha Stewart, lay off me.”
I do have a homemade butter pie crust recipe, but seriously folks, don’t feel bad if you take little shortcuts like a pre-made crust. And if you get grief from anyone about it, say “No pie for you.” (in the most “Soup Nazi” way you know how)
They will shut right up, because this pie is out of this world delicious! It’s sweet, tangy, and just the right amount of lemony-sour. It’s dreamy with some whipped cream on top. Again, don’t feel bad for using the canned whipped cream. No shame. We are only human, and we do have lives outside of the kitchen…am I right?!?
If you’ve never had a Sour Cream Lemon Pie before, it’s texture is similar to a Key Lime Pie. Sort of a pudding/custard base.
A little bit of summer in every bite.
