Lemons: When Life hands you Lemons, Make Pie!
I’m of the opinion that lemons were created by God himself (when he was in a very good mood)! They are such amazing little fruits that make life so much better. I love lemons y’all!
And lemon desserts? “Halllelujah!” They make the angels sing.
That being said, I have this funny little quirk about me: I love desserts. and I love eggs. But I absolutely cannot stand when I can taste an egg-like flavor in my desserts.
With the exception of this Crème Brule recipe, I will often forego a dessert recipe that calls for eggs. Well, I forego said recipes IF I think they will end up being egg taste-able. Which is a real bummer, because most custard-filled desserts are eggy.
Do you see the problem here guys?! Lemon bars, lemon meringues, lemon pies, lemon custard… So many lemon desserts that become unpalatable because of an egg flavor. Major thumbs down.
Enter stage center:
This eggless Sour Cream Lemon Pie. Y’all better be so excited right now! Why am I going on and on about my weird egg quirk? Because this sour cream lemon pie brings the God loving amazingness of lemons, but leaves the egg-like aftertaste in the dust. There are no eggs needed for this one! Corn starch to the rescue… Boo-yeah!
In order to make this recipe that much quicker and easier:
I use a premade graham cracker crust. I literally buy these crusts in bulk because I love this pie so much that I have to have it at least once or twice a week. And it is so quick and easy to make that if I have the ingredients on hand, that’s totally plausible. So, premade crust.
However, some day when you have extra time on your hands, try it with a flaky buttery pie crust! Both ways will make the party in your tummy very very happy.
