Lemon Pie

This pie is just sooo easy to make that you just won't believe it!  My brother came for lunch last weekend and, as it was right after a holiday, I woke up too late. I came back from the market at 11.30 and started making it. By half past noon, it was already ready to be devoured. This pie is among the hall of fame in my house! There's no way to go wrong in this recipe!

Lemon Pie


Pie Crust:

250g flour
125g softened butter
100g sugar
1 egg
A pinch of salt


1 can sweetened condensed milk
200 ml cream
3/4 cup freshly squeezed cup lemon juice


Pie Crust - In a bowl, add the butter, sugar and salt and mix them with the palm of your hand for a  while. Stir in the eggs and mix. Add the flour, previously strained, and mix until you get an even dough. If the douhg is sticking to your hand or bowl, add some more flour, and knead the dough, delicately. Wrap the dough in a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using ( I used it at the same time, had no time to wait). Open the dough  3 or 4 mm thick and  line it in the baking sheet. Cover it with aluminum foil, fill it with raw beans (or any other grains) and take it to the preheated oven 200oC for about 35 minutes.

Filling - Blend all the ingredients for about 5 minutes. Pour into the pie crust and refrigerate until serving time. You can grate some lemon zest in the top of the pie.
