Lemon Sour Cream Pie

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

If you are a lemon-lover then you will really enjoy this pie. If using whipped cream in place of Cool Whip then spread on top of the pie just before serving. Prep time is for making the lemon mixture only, this can also be made using a graham cracker crust --- see my Kittencal's No-Fail Buttery Flaky Pie Pastry/Crust

I have made this pie several times and everyone loves it! Added a little extra lemon zest to it one of the times which was a mistake. It's perfect just the way it's written!
