What do you do when lifetime hands you lemons?
I really do not know about you, but I make pie. Then I eat half of it, determine it’s too good to share, and say I forgot to provide it above for Easter. Oops. Excellent issue my Mom made a lemon meringue pie for the family or there would have been tears. Significantly, they’ve bought mad love for butter and sugar.
Baking lemon pie provides reminiscences of my Grandmother back to me. She made an amazing lemon pie with sky-high meringue. It was sensational, just like her. She was also extremely snippy and demanding at occasions. I assume she generally lived off of espresso and buttered toast, and the occasional chili from Wendy’s. I keep in mind at the time she set a pizza in the oven and questioned me why it seemed so funny… it was upside down. Legitimate story. I overlook her humor, mind-set, and that lemon pie.
I genuinely like pie. Like reallllllllyyyyy like it. I produced this pie out of memory of my grandmother but also simply because I experienced this crazy craving for lemon, sugar and butter. I’m confident this pie is a entire breakfast, I mean… there are eggs in it. Counts for anything.
The pie was unbelievable but the top secret is the crust. This crust will make you a pie baking goddess, and it’s so basic!It’s designed from pecans and gingersnap cookies.
Ginger and lemon? Yep. Ugh, I desire you could stay in my head. The flavor combination is excellent. No time for concerns, get baking!
Put your gingersnaps and pecan in a foods processor or blender. Procedure until eventually they resemble great crumbs.
Add melted butter and sugar. Process all over again.
Push your crust into a pie pan. Place in the oven and bake. Glimpse more lovable although carrying out it… uncomplicated!
The filling is pretty primary: fresh lemon juice, eggs, bitter cream, sugar, and corn starch. Blend with each other and pour into the baked pie crust. Set back again into the oven and bake again.
Distribute contemporary whip cream on top. Now you’ve acquired a lemon pie all to you. Excellent luck.
I certainly just can’t blame you for not sharing.
