Spring is in the air! Here in Utah the temperatures have been rising and spring blooms blossoming and it has me so excited for summer! Spring and summer are my favorite for many reasons. Spring means I can start planting all my spring crops in my garden, the grass starts getting greener and my kids start spending most of their days playing outside. It is so refreshing after a long cold winter. And one of my favorite parts about spring is all the spring desserts and spring flavors, which brings me to this delicious Lemon Cream Pie. It just screams spring time!
If you have been here for awhile, you know I am all about doing everything from scratch, which is why I encourage you to make this pie using my homemade pie crust recipe! It is so simple and so easy, so long as you have a food processor. That is your key to success and SO worth the little bit of extra effort to make your own pie crust. It makes all the difference.
Tips & Tricks:
- If you do not have a food processor or are nervous about making your own pie crust, you can use a store bought pie crust, although I can’t guarantee you will have the same results as my original recipe.
- You can easily turn this pie into my Passion Fruit Cream Pie, simply by switching out the lemon juice for passion fruit puree. You can always order some passion fruit puree here and use my code shaemakes for free shipping!
