Lemon pie

(Lemon pie)

Lemon tarts, I’ve had a few.

But double crusted pies, encasing an unusual and utterly luscious citrus filling? Not until now.

In a season of sticky baked puddings and molten chocolate belly-enhancers, who knew that a whole litre of water, sugar, three lemons, two egg yolks and a little potato starch, would now my answer to the impending Winter blues.

It’s only just occurred to me despite several years of blogging on this site, that I’ve never featured a lemon pie on my blog. Consider this minor error now rectified. With thanks to Stefano Manfredi, the pie recipe by Caterina Nuzzo is here. Go forth and bake pie.

    I’ve never thought to make a lemon pie with two crusts before…. and why not?! It looks magically delicious. Perfect for winter or summer!

    I had a good laugh at your headline, it was only a matter of time. i also couldn’t believe it would take a whole litre of water to make the filling but I guess I will have to try it! 😀

    The fact that you are featuring a lemon pie doesn’t mean that this is the end of your blog, does it?! I hope not. I have printed and favourited this recipe to make this weekend. Can’t wait!

    Lemon desserts (along with peanut butter and chestnut desserts) are my favourite, so this looks incredible! And I like how the filling, from your description, is dairy-free. Thank you for the link!

    It’s true, lemon tarts are very rarely graced with a top crust, but now I can’t imagine why not. This looks heavenly.

    If anything could sway me to have dessert it’s a lemon tart, but a double crusted one!!! wow, sounds delicious.

    I’ve never seen a double-crusted lemon pie – mostly lemon tarts, shaker pies, etc. Looks good though!

    Hello Miss Y. Looks like you’re keeping yourself as busy as ever. Hong Kong sounds amazing

    Thought you might be interested in this: http://www.twobluefish.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/17-stories-of-love-crime-by-lee-bemrose.html

    Compiled a bunch of stories and it’s now up on Amazon. The cover art is a photo of Ann reflected in an art piece in Prague. I like how it turned out. Half the stories have been published, the rest are unpublished but as good, I think.

    If you do take a look, I hope you enjoy. And if you want to leave a review on Amazon, that would be cool.

    We’re in Sydney this weekend. You about?

    I’ve got an abundant amount of lemons in the garden right now, and have been looking for new things to make with them. This lemon pie looks so good. I know my hubby will love it. Am going to find the recipe now:)
