Nothing celebrates summer like an outdoor picnic crowned with a mouthwatering slice of your favorite pie. Fruit pies, cream pies, those rich concoctions of custard dotted with chocolate—who can resist?
Do you have a favorite pie recipe? Please share on my Facebook page. On July 31st, I’ll award a $20 gift card for the winning recipe.
Here’s one of my go-to recipes for the lazy days of summer. From start to finish, the pie takes about ten minutes to make.
Lemon Cream Dream
8 ounce carton whipping cream
11 ounce jar lemon curd
9 inch graham cracker crust
(usually found in the grocery baking aisle)
Whip the cream until light and fluffy. With a spatula, fold in the lemon curd. Pour into the graham cracker crust and dot with your favorite summer berries. Enjoy!
