Lainie's Lemon Pie Recipe
For the Graham Cracker Crust:
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the Lemon Filling:
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 lemons, juiced and zested
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 egg yolks, beaten
For the Whipped Topping:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press this mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
3. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in butter.
4. Beat egg yolks in a separate bowl, then gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of the hot sugar mixture. Whisk the egg yolk mixture back into the remaining sugar mixture in the saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick.
5. Remove from heat and pour filling into the baked pie crust.
6. For the whipped topping, beat heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe onto the pie. Refrigerate pie until serving.
