Lemon Cream Berry Pie

I LOVE fruit pies - and right now this lemon cream berry pie is my favorite. The combination of lemon and fruit is perfect. I have only made it with strawberries and blueberries but I think it would also be good with fresh peaches or cherries.


Lemon Cream Berry Pie

9 inch pre-baked pie crust
1 cup lemon curd (use your favorite recipe or the recipe below)
2/3 cup heavy cream
4 tsp sugar
2 pints fresh berries

Beat cream to stiff peaks with sugar. Fold cream into lemon curd. Spread into baked crust. Arrange berries on top. Refrigerate until serving.

Lemon Curd:
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 T butter

Combine eggs, sugar, and juice in a heavy saucepan. Whisk until smooth. Over low heat, warm mixture while stirring. Add butter. Whisk until thickened. Do not allow to boil. Cool.

What seasonal recipe are you enjoying?

  1. Looks delicious. Can you share your recipe for the crust? The one I have always falls apart on me and I am looking for a new one that works. Did you use fresh squeezed lemons or the bottled stuff?
