Creamy Lemon Pie

Creamy Lemon Pie Recipe, Creamy Lemon Pie

Kensington is loving being more independent in the kitchen and one of her favorite things to do is make easy dessert recipes.  While we were on our ski vacation, she made us this Blackberry and Peach Cobbler recipe twice.  Last week, she wanted to make a lemon pie, so we made this one!  I assisted just a little with the food processor, but other than that, she made it entirely herself.  We enjoyed it for dessert two nights in a row.  Creamy, lemony and full of that citrus flavor that’s so popular this time of year.

Cheers to the weekend!  You should make this pie 🙂 .

This recipe makes one pie.

Shopping List
about ½ cups of crushed Golden Oreo cookies (about 20 or so)
6 tablespoons of melted butter
1 (3 oz) box of instant lemon pudding
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of milk
1 cup whipped topping (I used Cool Whip)
the zest of one lemon, plus a little more for garnish
To make the crust:
Place your Golden Oreos directly in your food processor.  Pulse the crumbled cookies until they are fine.  Add in your melted butter and pulse until it’s all combined.  Remove the mixture and pat it inside the pie plate.  Make sure you pat it up the sides as well as across the bottom.  Freeze about one hour before filling.
To make the filling:
In a large mixing bowl, whisk your dry lemon pudding mix, sweetened condensed milk and milk about two minutes.  Whisk in your whipped topping and lemon zest until just combined.
Remove your crust from the freezer and pour the lemon pudding mixture down over the top.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 2 days.
Remove from fridge and garnish with a bit more lemon zest.
Serve and enjoy!

    This looks really good! Dumb question … do you put the cookies in the food processor, filling and all? Or do you scrape out the filling?

    Oh my, we are suckers for anything lemon flavored in our house. I will have to make this for my hubby’s birthday on Tuesday!

    This looks soo yummy! I love that Kensington made it by herself.
    My girls LOVE being in the kitchen and having that independence too! In the past I’ve let them each completely plan one dinner per week from start to finish. They find the recipe, make the list, have their own basket at the grocery store, and cook it all up all on their on. I only step in when needed. I think the knowledge and confidence to make their way around the kitchen is such a great tool for them to have as they grow.
    We will definitely be trying out this pie in the very near future!
