My grandmother made the best lemon cream pie. It was silky smooth and so incredibly delicious. Once I was married, she and I decided that her traditional recipe could easily be adapted into a no bake lemon cream pie that would be easier to make and just as smooth and creamy without ever having to turn on the oven! It is perfect!

If you have ever had a slice of lemon cream pie, you’ll know how smooth and full of lemon flavor that it is. To make the classic, it includes eggs which then requires the pie to be baked and cooled before serving. For Southern summers, we do our very best to find every way possible to make meals and desserts that do not require us to ever turn on the oven! That’s why I love this no bake version of a favorite dessert.
