This recipe is a spin-off of my previous recipe post Lemon Bars. I love to make it this way because when you add fresh fruit on top of this pie it looks like an upscale dessert that you spent hours on instead of minutes.
First gather all of your ingredients:
1 extra large graham cracker crust – Feel free to make your own, I took the easy way out with a store bought crust.
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 T. freshly grated lemon rind
1/2 +1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is pre-heating combine all ingredients except the powdered sugar and berries in a mixing bowl. Mix for about 1 minute at low speed until all ingredients are combined.
Next place your graham cracker crust on a baking sheet. Then pour the lemon mixture into the pie shell. Place the baking sheet with the pie on it in the oven for an hour or until the pie no longer jiggles.
Once the pie is completely cooled sprinkle the top with powered sugar and top with the fresh berries. This is a great pie to bring to a summer BBQ.
