National Lemon Cream Pie Day | Creamy Lemon Pie – The Foodie Patootie

National Lemon Cream Pie Day | Creamy Lemon Pie

“It’s not easy being cheesy”. Well, why not, Cheeto Man?! It’s certainly easy being lemony. I love the tartness of lemons, the acidity that pairs well with olive oil for a nice, light dressing on my salad. The zest, used just right on a grilled chicken and arugula flatbread….


I always have lemons in the refrigerator, for many things. I told Mike that we have to have a lemon tree when we finally get a yard and can plant such things. I dream of getting my wicker basket and collecting those precious lemons from my own yard and making a ton of food with them. It would be a kitchen full of lemon.

For today, National Lemon Cream Pie Day, I am showing you a previous dessert I made for the first National Pie Day of the year (on the second pie day, just recently, I made Italian Shephard’s Pie). It’s a Creamy Lemon Pie that we loved…loved so much it hurt. As in, I ate so much I ended up with a stomachache. Oh, the price we pay for a great meal.
