This recipe is actually by my Aunt. She adapted the lemon pie filling from a lemon curd recipe. Turns out, this pie is BETTER than lemon curd. Yum yum yum!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake your pie crust.Combine granulated sugar, milk, water, cornstarch and a pinch of salt in a large, non-reactive saucepan. Whisk to combine, then bring to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
  2. As the mixture reaches a simmer, and begins to thicken and turn clear (4-5 min) whisk in egg yolks, 1 at a time. Slowly add lemon juice, then zest, then butter, 1 piece at a time.
  3. Whisk constantly, and return to a simmer. Remove from heat and pour immediately into prepared pie crust. After it has cooled and set, top it with whipped cream. Enjoy!
