Light and Fluffy - Lemon Cream Pie
This was a creative concoction that I came up with for the sole purpose of using up a jar of lemon curd I bought at Trader Joe's.I don't have an actual recipe, so I'll just tell you how I put this creamy pie (it was declared heavenly by a neighbor I shared it with) together.
1 graham cracker crust
1 pint whipping cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 3 oz. boxes lemon pudding
1 1/2 cup cold milk
1 jar lemon curd
Whip the whipping cream until stiff, set aside. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in 1 cup of whipped cream. Pour into pie shell. Beat milk and 1 box of lemon pudding together on medium for two minutes. Pour over cream cheese filling. Beat lemon curd and 1 box of lemon pudding together for three minutes, until smooth. Fold in 1/2 to 1 cup of whipped cream. Pour over pudding mixture on pie. Top with remaining whipped cream. Chill for four hours, or until firm. Note: The whipped cream can be changed out for Cool Whip.
