Description

Lemon Pie is a perfect palate pleaser. It is light, sweet, and decadent. Make this pie for a holiday, special occasion or a sweet treat on a Sunday evening. Pie crust ingredients include flour, sugar, butter, egg yolks, cold water, and salt. The pie filling ingredients include lemon juice, lemons, butter, sugar, eggs, and egg yolks. After baking the crust to perfection, letting it cool, and adding the filling, make sure it sits in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Top with strawberries for added sweetness.

Ingredients

250 grams flour
40 grams sugar
125 grams butter (cold and cubed)
1 egg yolks
60 milliliters cold water
1 pinch salt
150 milliliters lemon juice
3 lemon
170 grams butter (cubed)
220 grams sugar
5 eggs
1 egg yolks

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
2Mix the flour and sugar together in a large bowl and cut in the butter. Add the egg yolk and salt and mix together. Add the cold water, little by little, and form into a ball. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
3Roll the dough out until it is only 5 millimeters thick and press into a pie pan. Prick with a fork and refrigerate for 60 minutes or place into the freezer for 30 minutes.
4Bake for 20 minutes with a weight (such as a bag of dry rice or beans). Remove the weight and bake until slightly golden. Remove from oven and cool.
5Mix the lemon juice and rind, butter, eggs, sugar, and egg yolk together in a saucepan. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly until thickens, approximately 5-10 minutes.
6When it begins to boil, remove from heat, strain, and cover with plastic wrap. Cool in a water bath or in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
7Pour the filling into the pie crust and let cool in the refrigerator until firm, approximately 2 hours.
