Arizona Sunshine Lemon Pie


Arizona Sunshine Lemon Pie



– For the pie:

1 large lemon

4 large eggs

½ cup butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla

1½ cups sugar

1 (9 inches) pie crust, unbaked (store bought, pre-made or make your own)

– For the topping: (optional)

1 cup whipping cream

2 Tablespoons sugar


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Wash your lemon then cut up and remove all the seeds. (Don’t peel it, you will blend the whole lemon!) Place in your high powered blender (such as a Vitamix).

Add the eggs, butter, vanilla, and sugar. Blend until smooth. I started at power 5 then moved up to 10.

Pour the mixture into your pie crust. Bake for about 40 minutes or until set.

Let cool then chill in the fridge.

For the topping:

Place your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Add your whipping cream and sugar. Whip till peaks form.

Slice pie and serve chilled with a dollop of the whipped cream on top.

2 3/4 cups Flour

1 1/4 teaspoon Salt

Best Pie Crust Ever Instructions

Mix flour, sugar, and salt together.

Grate butter into small pieces.

Using a pastry cutter blend butter into flour mixture.

Sprinkle water into mixture then toss with a fork until it forms into a ball. (work dough as little as possible. The more you "knead", or work it, the tougher it will be)

Form into disc, and seal in zip lock bag., 

Chill, at least an hour or overnight.

Remove from fridge, let set 10 minutes, then roll out and place in pie plate.
