Sour Cream Lemon Pie

I love lemon. I love just about anything lemon, especially desserts. Besides chocolate, lemon desserts are my favorite. I have loved lemons since I was kid. Lemon pie is my favorite lemon dessert.

Years ago, my best friend’s mom made a really good lemon pie. It was so good, one of the best I had ever had. But it was different, not a lemon meringue pie, it was a sour cream lemon pie. I loved the pie. I got the recipe from her and saved it. I never made it until after I was married, but I remembered that lemon pie. I have now made this pie many times. I have taken it to church dinners, picnics, and family gatherings.

I made it a couple of weeks ago for the lunch I made for my husband’s office. Everyone at the office loved the pie. This is a great summertime dessert and a nice change from your average lemon pie.

  10. Lynn,
    Do you think low-fat or fat-free sour cream would work? I also sub in plain yogurt for sour cream but wasn’t sure if that would be too runny and affect the consistency. I am a fellow lemon lover!

    • I think low fat would work fine, I am not sure about fat free it might be fine. I have not used the fat free much. I think you are right that yogurt would be too runny. I hope that helps.
