Amazingly Delicious Sour Cream Lemon Pie


Amazingly Delicious Sour Cream-Lemon Pie recipe















1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
cup butter
or margarine, melted
1 cup sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
1 cup milk
3 large egg yolks
slightly beaten
cup lemon juice
¼ cup butter
or margarine, cut up
1 tablespoon lemon zest
finely shredded
8 ounces sour cream
cup heavy whipping cream
4 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
twists, optional


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

For the crust, in a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and 2 tablespoons sugar.

Add ⅓ cup melted butter and toss to mix well.

Spread the mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie plate, pressing onto the bottom and up the sides to form a firm, even crust.

Bake for 6 minutes, or until the edge is lightly browned.

Cool on a wire rack.

For the filling, in a medium saucepan, combine the 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, milk and egg yolks.

Cook and stir over medium-high heat until the mixture is thickened and bubbly.

Reduce the heat.

Cook for 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.

Gently stir in the lemon juice, cut up butter and lemon peel.

Add the sour cream, mixing gently until just combined.

Pour the filling into the pie crust.

Cover and chill for 4 to 6 hours.

In a chilled bowl, combine the whipping cream, 4 teaspoons sugar and vanilla extract.

Beat with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form.

Top the pie with dollops of the whipped cream.

Garnish with lemon twists, if you like.

Store the pie in the refrigerator.
