Sour Cream Lemon Pie
10 ingredients

Perfect! Near my home there is a farm stand that also has a bakery with amazing pies. I discovered the sour cream lemon pie and fell in love, but it's $13.50 for one pie! So I was on the hunt for a recipe that could mimic it. This one is actually BETTER than the expensive bakery pie! I didn't change anything in the recipe and the flavor and texture was absolutely perfect! Actually, I did accidently use 3 1/2 tsps of cornstarch instead of 3 1/3, but it was fine and I don't think it changed it. I cooked the mixture on medium-low heat and I used a wire whisk to stir often. It seemed like it wasn't going to thicken, then all of sudden it did. The color and texture was beautiful, but I was a little worried when I tasted it because it didn't seem very lemony. After it was completely chilled and ready to be served the lemon flavor was much stronger. It is a perfect balance of tart lemon and sweet creaminess. Not too tart, not too sweet. I topped the pie with with whipped cream and garnished with lemon zest. This is my go-to pie recipe now and it's so easy to make! Thank you for the perfect recipe!
