There is no simpler dessert than this lemon cream pie. Only 4 ingredients and NO BAKING! Cool and creamy, this pie is the perfect finish to a summer BBQ. Make it when you’re short on time but heading to a potluck. Truly a simple “anytime” dessert.
I love math as much as the next guy, so I’m happy to post this 4 ingredient lemon cream pie in honor of pi day. This pie is truly the easiest dessert you can possibly make. The hardest part is juicing lemons. There is no baking involved. (Of course I baked my own graham cracker crust, but that’s just how I roll). If you can operate a can opener, you’re totally golden.
Save your brain power for differentials, or integers, or complex fractions, or something like that. (Yes, I had to google “math words” in order to come up with those) Or skip the math and do something you like to do with all the free time you’ll have by not having to bake this dessert.
I’d love to hear about what your favorite no-bake desserts are. Leave a comment below and let me know!
