Lemon Cream Pie

With the few types of dishes I prepared for a small gathering at home, this lemon cream pie was of it. Whenever its desserts, I always look for an easy way out, that is preparing a dessert which is fancy free and the most simplest type. So, I referred back to my previous recipe of "No Bake Cheese Cake" and got the idea of making a crumble crust for the bottom layer of the pie with flour and butter.  As for the topping, the lemony creamy flavour came about with the ingredients as stated in this recipe. The colourful sugar sprinkles on top drew the attention of my friends as the pie looked so attractive. There was a perfect balance of sugar with the lemony fragrant and flavour for this was the feedback I got from my friends.  At the end of the day, every bit of the pie was slept clean.

For the crust
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter

For the topping
1 cup condensed milk
1 cup whipped cream
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon rind
Crumble the flour and butter together.
Press into a spring form pie pan.
Leave in the fridge for about 1 hour.
Next, add all the ingredients for the topping.
Whisk together and pour over the crust.
Bake at preheated oven at 180C for about 1 hour.
Once the crust becomes brown and the topping is set, remove from oven.
Cool  down and decorated with colourful sugar sprinkles.
Place back in the fridge for at least 4 hours before slicing to be served.

  21. Lemon cream pie sounds like something anyone who loves lemon would enjoy a lot (besides the usual ice lemon tea, Pepsi Twist and lemon cheesecake, this is a new recipe that will surely brighten the day), and the colourful sugar sprinkles is a nice stroke, making it reaaly jazzy, fun and 'junky' enough to satisfy all the 'kids' (big and small) out there-nothing too mature or serious in presentation but something that you would want to eat with your hands, swaying on on a hammock.
