Lemon Sour Cream Pie

It's been so long since I made this that I forgot how easy and yummy it is. The whole production takes less than half an hour, no baking involved.

First make your crust to chill while you make the filling.
22 graham crackers
6 Tblsp salted butter
Toss them into a blender or processor and crush til fine and well blended. Press into a pie dish evenly. Chill.

Whisk together
1 c. whole milk
3 egg yolks
and let stand to warm slightly.

In a large (non-reactive) saucepan mix together well
1/2 c. white sugar
3 Tblsp. corn starch
then stir in til evenly dissolved and smooth
1/2 c. lemon juice (3 lemons should do it)

Add your eggs and milk to the saucepan, and stirring constantly, heat on medium until thick. As soon as it reaches thickness, remove from the heat and completely stir in
1/4 c. room temperature salted butter
Let stand to cool.

When cool, whisk in
1 1/4 c. sour cream
Pour into crust. Level off the top. Cover. Chill until serving.
That's it. And it's really gooood.

It does indeed sound good. Probably not something to make often. Perhaps when my smaller portion is eating again.

EC- Yeah, it's a once-a-year sort of thing. Way too rich for just any day. I hope SP is seriously on the mend now and that you're getting enough rest.

I never took monetary bribes but, as a gardener of public places for many years, I was known to respond well to pie. This recipe would've got you special attention or I don't know poetry.

George- Wish you lived closer- I have a whole back garden to replace! :)
