National Pie Day | Creamy Lemon Pie – The Foodie Patootie

National Pie Day | Creamy Lemon Pie

It’s National Pie Day! I think, technically, it’s supposed to be Rhubarb Pie Day, but just says pie, which really helps me out because I’ve never cooked with rhubarb and couldn’t even find any in the grocery store. Whew. Lemon Pie it is!

I really love anything lemon. Lemon spaghetti, lemonade, those amazing Lemon Drop candies…and of course, Creamy Lemon Pie. While I’m not normally a pie person, I do make exceptions and a Lemon Pie is one of them. Ah, creamy, refreshing, and not too heavy.

I brought this to a BBQ party and it really was a perfect way to end the day. Enjoy!
