It is that time year when lemons are falling off the bush in my backyard and when life gives you lemons make lemon pie. While I love the lemon custard in lemon meringue pie, I am not so fond of the meringue. So I thought about what type of topping to do instead and I came up with the idea of Mascarpone whipped cream. The idea came to me as I was having lunch with a friend who told me about making cannoli. Originally I wanted to make the cannoli filling for the top, but decided to go for an easier root. Then I thought about what should I flavor it with and I remembered the amazing lemon lavender sugar cookies another friend makes every year. The flavors of the lemon and lavender in the pie came out very subtle and not overpowering. The pie also traveled well as it went to my mother’s house two hours away for her birthday. My recommendation is to make the pie the night before and chill over night. My husband and I were able to pry one piece away from my parents that we had the next day. Chilling just made the pie even better, and brightened the dreary rainy day.
