I wanted ideas for Sunday pie and there were some new ones I'd never tried! Grapefruit pie... There's a creamy version and a more jelled version! Apple/plum pie????
Doesn't that sound wonderful????
But I ended up with Lemon Cream Sour Cream pie so I'm sharing that here today! I found the same recipe on several sites, so I made Ruthy-family adjustments and we gave this recipe a TWO THUMBS UP!!
Prepare pie crust.
Mine is a deep dish pie pan ($5.98 from Walmart, LOVE IT!!!)
2 Cup sugar
1/2 cup Corn Starch
2 Cups milk
6 egg yolks
1 cup lemon Juice
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup sour cream
Measure sugar and corn starch into pan and mix well. Stir or whisk in milk, egg yolks and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring regularly...
(AUTHOR NOTE: IT IS NOT GOOD TO WALK AWAY AND ERASE THE VIDEOS ON YOUR CAMERA CARD AT THIS POINT BECAUSE IT IS LIKELY YOU WILL SCORCH THE HECK OUR OF THE BOTTOM OF THE PUDDING MIX... THIS IS ME, SAVING YOU FROM YOURSELF....)
Okay, so let's begin again, pay attention this time and don't walk away from the pudding....
Once you've cooked the delicious unburned pudding until it bubbles and thickens, then remove from heat, add butter, whisk in.... chill pudding. When cool, stir in the sour cream. Pour into cool pie shell or vanilla cookie crust.
Top with whipped cream, if desired.
2 cups fresh whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
Put into deep mixing bowl. Mix on high speed until peaks form...
Aren't these gorgeous? Grandma's 83rd birthday today... So these are going to her house in a little while! We could use a glimpse of spring around here right now!
And it was perfect.
