Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine sugar, cornstarch, rind, juice, eggs and milk in heavy saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in butter; cool to room temperature.
  • Stir in sour cream and pour filling into baked and cooled pie crust.
  • For topping, whip the whipping cream with the sugar until stiff peaks form. You can always use Cool Whip, but there’s nothing that beats real whipped cream for flavor!
  • Spread whipped cream over top of pie.
  • At serving, top each pie slice with a lemon "twist" (a thin slice of lemon, with one cut from the outer edge to the center of the slice, the 2 cut edges then separated in opposite directions and the ends poked into the whipped cream, making the slice “stand up” on the pie slice). I've also garnished each slice with a candy lemon "fruit slice" like you can buy at the candy stores...very pretty either way.
  • Keep refrigerated.

    I know this lemon pie must have a unique taste with the sour cream in it. Sounds wonderful!

    Krummie, this sounds really divine and I love that it conjures fond memories for you. That is the icing in reality.

    I will have to try this on a skinny day or an the-hell-with-it day.

    :-)
