⅓ cup cornstarch

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup milk

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp powdered sugar

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Cool Time: 5–6 hrs

Servings: 8


1 Place egg yolks in a medium bowl and whisk lightly, then set aside.

2 Combine the sugar, cornstarch, cream, milk, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a low boil stirring constantly for 2–3 minutes, until mixture starts to thicken.

3 Remove from heat and add about ¼ cup of the mixture at a time to the egg yolks, whisking quickly to temper the yolks. Return the mixture to the saucepan and return to a boil, cooking for another 2 minutes.

4 Remove from heat again and add in butter, lemon zest, and vanilla, stirring until the butter is melted.

5 Allow to cool slightly, then pour into the prepared pie shell. Let rest for another 15 minutes, then refrigerate until completely cooled and set (about 5–6 hours or overnight.)

6 In a cold metal mixing bowl, beat heavy whipping cream with an electric mixer. When cream thickens slightly, add powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.

7 Pipe whipped cream onto the top of the completely cooled pie for a decorated effect or spread over the top of the pie in an even layer, then garnish with lemon slices if desired. Serve and enjoy!
