Sour Cream Lemon Pie

I know it's only January but I'm dying for some spring time goodness!  Today has been a gloomy, rainy day  and I need some sunshine so I thought I'd pull out this recipe that I've been saving to put on here and bring everyone some sunshine too(at least to your taste buds!).  I'm pretty sure I got this recipe out of a calendar but I couldn't tell you which one or even which year :/ whoops!  Enjoy anyway!

Sour Cream Lemon Pie:

9 in. pie crust, (baked)

1 c. sugar
3 1/2 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 T. lemon zest
3 egg yolks
1 c. milk
1/4 c. butter
1 c. sour cream

2 c. whipped cream (I made my own with a cup (give or take) of heavy whipping cream and a little sugar, beaten until thick and fluffy)

- Combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, egg yolks, and milk in a saucepan.  Cook on medium for 3-5 minutes, until thickened.  Stir in butter (I cut mine into smaller chunks so it melts a little faster);  cool to room temperature.  Stir in the sour cream and then spoon into the already baked pie crust.  Cover with whipped cream and chill in refrigerator. It tastes better a little cold.  enjoy!

Pin It!
