Pucker up buttercup!  You’ve just met your new favorite dessert in this easy no bake lemon pie!

While lemons are available throughout the year at supermarkets, there is just something about them that makes me think spring and sunshine.  I’m not sure why, maybe it’s the pretty yellow color in a bowl on the counter or the fresh citrusy zing they add to dishes, both sweet and savory (and even in beverages like my Summer Sassy Lemonade).

Either way, no matter what time of year it is, I love to incorporate lemon into desserts.  I find that the delicious tart flavor always offsets the sweetness creating a perfectly balanced dessert.

This easy pie recipe needs just four simple ingredients (plus whipped cream if you’d like… but that’s optional)!

You’ll start by blending the cream cheese until it’s soft and fluffy and then add in the lemon juice and the sweetened condensed milk.  You’ll want to blend until smooth and slightly thickened.  It is very important to stick with the recipe on this one as the lemon juice reacts with the sweetened condensed milk and helps set the pie.  If you don’t use lemon juice your pie will be runny and won’t set up right.Creamy lemon pie ingredients in a glass bowl

I use fresh lemon juice because I prefer the flavor but you can most certainly use bottled lemon juice if you prefer.  If you’re using fresh lemon juice, you can also use a microplane zester to zest the lemons and add it into the pie.  This will add a nice zing!  While I use a purchased graham cracker crust, you can use any type of crust for this recipe.  If you’re using a regular flour pie crust, you’ll want to bake it and cool it completely before filling since this is a no bake pie.

This Creamy Lemon Pie recipe is super easy to make and so refreshing and delicious and if your family is anything like mine they’ll be requesting it over and over!

  1. Lime pie is the great. Tasty and tarted

  2. How much lemon zest would you recommend using?

    • Margie, I would use the zest of one whole lemon. If you like it really lemony, use the zest from two lemons. Enjoy!

  3. We use to put egg yolks in this pie.

  4. Sounds delicious
