Okay, this isn’t just a normal lemon pie.
It’s a lemon sunshine dessert, and it’s for those who are just too lazy to make pies. I swear what comes out of the oven is nothing short of springy, custardy, plain lemon magic, thanks to eggs, butter, sugar, and practically a LEMON buzzed up in the blender and baked in a pie crust.
My grandmother passed away a few years ago, but she used to name this Arizona Blender Lemon Pie because she had lemon trees in her Arizona backyard, as you can remember if you’ve been a long long long time reader, and she liked lemon desserts, as I’ll remind you by referring you to one of my first ever POY recipes. My grandma had a particular fondness for getting people together around food, despite the fact that she had little time for something fancy or fussy. This recipe is undeniably hers. There you have it: fresh Arizona lemons, a mixer, and a pre-made pie crust. On the table, you have a quick and lovely dessert.
This recipe is written in her handwriting on a little notecard that I have. Simply… the greatest.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THE PIE:
Lemons, I used two medium-sized.
4 eggs, large-sized.
½ Cup.Of melted butter.
1 small spoons.Of vanilla extract.
1½ Cups.Of granulated white sugar.
An unbaked medium pie crust, I used the 9-inches crust.
To prepare the topping, I used:
1 Cup.Of whipping cream.
2 large spoons.Of granulated white sugar.
But it’s optional.
I started the preparation by removing the frozen pie crust from the fridge, sometimes when I had enough time, I produced my own.
Next, I simply placed it on a baking sheet due to the metal pan’s fragility; note: if using a glass pie plate, this step is unnecessary.
Then, immediately I heated the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Following that, I washed the lemon and cut it up, and removed all the seeds but I ket the peels, they give it more flavor, and I stick it in a high-powered blender.
And, I combined the eggs, with melted butter, I added in the vanilla extract, and granulated white sugar in a blender until creamy.
Then, into the pie crust, I poured the mixture in, and baked it for approximately 40 minutes.
And once cooked, I let my pie cooled and chilled in the refrigerator while I made the topping.
To make the topping, follow these steps:
I beat the whipping cream in a medium bowl, and while beating I added the granulated sugar, and keep beating until peaks form.
Then, I sliced the pie and served it chilled with whipped cream on top, it’s better served chilled but if you want you can serve it warm.
