Arizona Lemon Pie

Arizona Lemon Pie

I posted Grandma Clement's Pie Crust recipe, now you need something to put in it!  

My parents are snowbirds and they live in Arizona for the winter.  We love to go down and visit them every year, the retirement lifestyle is one for me.  I love the pace of everything and the sun keeps me smiling.  

She got this recipe from one of her neighbours a few years ago and it's the best lemon pie recipe you will ever taste.  It's also made in the blender so it takes minutes to do.  

Traditional lemon pie usually has a meringue topping but this pie is served with whipped cream on top, either way it would still be delicious! 

Arizona Lemon Pie

1 large lemon
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter

Start by cutting both ends off the lemon and slicing it into pieces.  Remove all the seeds.

Put the lemon pieces in the blender along with all the other ingredients and blend on high until everything is smooth.

Pour it into the unbaked pie crust and remove any large chunks that the blender may have missed. 

Put it in a 330F oven for 30 minutes and be sure to watch it, it can burn quickly.  Pull it out when the top starts to turn brown.

Serve topped with whip cream or meringue and enjoy!

We’ve known Jer (Jeremy) since he was a baby, he’s the same age as our older daughter. Our families are close and it’s so fun watching them grow up together. He’s the first one up in the morning, coffee perking, always ready and excited to help his dad with anything.  He likes to send it, play hockey and hang out with his friends and his kitties. For entrepreneurship class this term, he nailed it when he and his Mom made fudge to sell to his classmates. On the bus ride home that day, he was super kind and shared some with our younger daughter and when she got home she shared some with me. It was SO GOOD that I needed to get the recipe so I could make some too and they said I could share it here as well so I hope you enjoy it as much as we are. Keep it up with these great ideas, Jer! We love you buddy!

The recipe to make bread is exactly the same as making cinnamon buns, the only difference is that you split the dough in half and drop them directly into loaf pans to proof before baking. Coming up soon is a stuffed ham and cheese loaf/buns that's been fantastic for lunch, dinner and field suppers. It's an all-in-one sandwich that never disappoints.
