This simple lemon pie can easily be made with items you might already have on hand. It also reminds me of a less lemony lemon bar and is a huge hit with guests.


  • 1 ½ lemons (3/8 cup lemon juice)
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • dash salt
  • unbaked pastry shell, 9”


  • Place pastry in pie pan and crimp edges. (If you're using store bought pie dough, let it get to room temperature first for ease of unrolling)
  • Have lemon at room temperature or soak in warm water (to get more juice).
  • Zest rind (note, you just want the yellow on top, not the white pith, so zest shallowly).
  • Ream out or squeeze lemon , measure juice.
  • Add sugar, melted butter, eggs, salt. Mix with wire whip until smooth. Mix in grated rind or just put it in the pie shell. Pour rest over.
  • Bake at 325 about 45 minutes.
  • Makes one large pie.
