A new lemon pie recipe for you to try.

Jean's picture

Instant Lemon Pie


1 Prepared pie crust shell


Place in a blender the following:
1 lemon, quartered and seeds removed, but including rind          (if rind is thin use it all, if it is thick remove some of the bitter white stuff)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 pound of butter
4 large eggs.


Blend the above for about 4 minutes or until smooth.
Pour into pie crust shell.
Bake for 40 minutes at 350°, or until slightly browned.


Can be topped with meringue or whipped cream.


Our friends got this from someone they met while in Arizona and raved about it's ease of assembly and flavor.


Thought I'd share with whoever is brave enough to try it.

I tried something similar from Anthony Bourdain's book -- you use the whole lemon, in other words.  It was tasty, but the filling is not a smooth as a lemon curd filling, and I missed the smoothness.

?? Really !!  They did say that the texture was different, but they really loved it. I'm going to have to try it one of these days. When my kids come home to visit again. LOL.(DD is busy finishing up her last year at college. She was notified yesterday that she's elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Proud mother dance. :) )

Thanks. Looks like she'll end  up with a 4.0. Can't wait to see the senior art exhibition next week.

That seems mighty slim on the lemons. One? I think three or four might be more like it. Except for mushing everything together it sounds like a version of Shaker pie http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=recipe2163 or http://www.lanierbb.com/recipes/data/ds492.html 


The key to this type of recipe IMO is all the variables - how big and tart and skin-laden are the lemons etc., how thin do you like the slices (paper thin is hard to duplicate without a mandoline), and what sort of texture and sweet-tart mix do you want in the pie.
