3 Ingredient Lemon Pie

This is a definition of “easy as pie”! This is possibly the simplest and most delicious pie you can create with just three ingredients for the filling!

Lemon pie is a sweet, tart taste. The creamy filling goes well with a graham crunch or crushed cookies for the crust.

Lemon pie is truly magical in its power. Every bite of lemon pie is reminiscent of summer; it’s still available in winter!

This little paradox demonstrates that lemon pie can be enjoyed throughout the year, So don’t be afraid to make this recipe, whether it’s in mid-December or on the final day of June!

If Life Hands You Lemons, Bake The Lemon Pie!

The lemon pie is based on sweetened condensed milk for its sour-sweet taste. Condensed milk sweetened with sugar has many applications and isn’t only used for coffee and ice cream.

The best aspect of the pie recipe is it needs a bit of mixing and baking. The recipe is simple to make with only a few ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions!

What is it that makes this pie So Delicious?

The pie is fantastic whether you buy a store-bought pie crust or your homemade pie crust. The following are the main ingredients that make this pie delicious:

  • A buttery, crispy Graham crust is a must to make this dish. A good base is essential for any pie, especially lemon pie. In addition, butter enhances the lemon’s flavor!
  • If you are making lemon pie, I recommend using real lemons and only real lemons! The recipe has only a few ingredients, so it’s crucial to use the best quality for the best flavor.
  • Like the lemons, ensure that you purchase eggs of the highest quality. Only freshly laid eggs will guarantee an attractive yellow yolk with an exquisite texture.
  • The sweetened condensed milk will provide all the sugar you require for your pie. In addition, it adds flavor and smoothness!
  • I like to add a bit of sweetness to the crust for extra sweetness. However, go with butter and graham crackers if you don’t possess a sweet tooth!

How to Serve Lemon Pie

Once you’ve baked the pie, it’s recommended to remain in the refrigerator for a minimum of 3 hours after cooling at room temperature for about 20 minutes. I prefer to keep mine in the refrigerator to let it set as well as it can be.

The lemon pie is consumed independently, but I prefer topping it with whip cream. One of my favorites is coconut cream whipped to add another flavor on top of that lemon.
