Sour Lemon Pie

I know this picture is not much to look at but if you're in to lemon, keep reading because this pie is lemony-licious. I'm not really a pie person usually unless it's lemon something or other. I've been making this pie for a few years now and my family all loves it. I got this recipe from a friend who invited us for Thanksgiving dinner one year where this pie was served. We make it every year now.

Sour Lemon Pie
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
3 egg yolks
1/4 butter
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups cool whip

1 baked and cooled pie crust

Warm milk and sugar in a saucepan. In a small mixing bowl, combine cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest and egg yolks and set aside. When milk mixture is almost to a boil, add lemon mixture, whisking constantly. Bring to a rolling boil, continuing to stir constantly. Take off heat and add butter. Let cool slightly then add the sour cream and cool whip. Whip until fluffy then Pour into baked pie crust and chill. Top with additional cool whip, if desired.


  1. What a delicious change from the usual pumpkin pie. Sounds refreshing.

  2. Ooooh... I can't wait to try this one! I adore lemon. And you.

  3. Lisa, it is refreshing, although I do love pumpkin too, just not as much.

    And Erin, I adore you too!
