Lemon Cream Pie

Lemons! I just so love, in fact millions of love for lemons. That tang, zang and citrusy lemony taste and scent? Oh-my! Just so refreshing. Lemons are great in anything for the matter. For savory dishes (Lemon Cashew Rice) or should I say anything when baking and lemons are married together (Lemon Buttermilk Cake)? What's the dessert today? Dessert for celebrating lemon? Obviously, we are are getting closer and closer to this Lemon Cream Pie (No Bake Cheesecake). Flour-butter crumbled sugarless bottom layer and sweet-tangy lemony atop. That's about it foodies. I'll see you again the next time (Poached Pears In Citrus Syrup & Chocolate Rum Tart). 

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

Crumble flour and butter together.
Press into a greased spring-form pie pan.
Place in the fridge to set (about 1 hour).
Next, combine all ingredients for the topping in a bowl.
Whisk together and pour over the bottom layer.
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 tucking in.


  1. It looks very simple n delicious ....

  2. I am with you on the idea of simple no fuss desserts.
    Lemony cream flavour topping is finger licking and with colorful sprinkles it looks so pretty.

  3. I like the bright colourful appearance. Kinda of bring joy and happiness to me!

  4. I like that there is not a lot of ingredients in this, it really allows all that wonderful lemon flavor to shine through. I am always ready to eat when it comes to lemon desserts and this one does look like a winner. The sprinkles on top were a great idea-very eye catching. Enjoy the day!

  5. This looks awesome! Gonna ask my gf to make this for me. Thanks for the recipe =)

  20. 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.
