Lemon Cream Pie


If its desserts, it has to be an easy way out and relatively the most simplest type. A year back when I just started baking, I goggled for recipes. Well, the moment of truth: I don't want to condemn anyone out there and perhaps you may agree with me. Somehow, somewhere and somewhat almost half of those recipes flopped. I wonder if its me?, unable to understand and digest the technics. I can count the number of recipes which were/are straightforward and workable.

That probably says why I now refer back to my own recipes and for this pie, "No Bake Cheese Cake". Henceforth, the crumble for the bottom layer; flour and butter. The topping; infused and scented with lemon and other ingredients listed below. Subsequently, colourful sugar sprinkles for its sparkling colorful finishing.

This cake; simple yet irresistible for its citrusy lemony scent and taste. At the end of the day, every bit of the pie was swept clean.

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

For the topping
1 cup condensed milk
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon rind
Method
Crumble flour and butter together.
Press into a greased spring form pie pan.
Place in the fridge to compact it (about 1 hour).
Next, combine all ingredient for the topping in a mixing bowl.
Whisk together and pour over the crust.
Bake at 170/180c for about 1 hour.
(note; alternatively shorter time for a lesser crusty texture)
Remove, cool down and decorate with 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.
