For the topping:

  1. Place in the freezer your mixing bowl and beaters for about 20 minutes. Add your whipping cream and sugar. Whip till peaks form.

  • If you’re looking to cut down on calories, you can use low-fat or fat-free whipped topping instead of heavy whipping cream for the topping.

For a decorative touch, you can top the whipped cream with a few thin slices of lemon or sprinkle some lemon zest over the top.

This pie can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Just make sure to cover it tightly with plastic wrap or foil to prevent it from drying out.

    1. Hey Joan,

      No, the white pith of the lemon won’t make the lemon pie bitter. While the pith does have a slightly bitter taste, it is the zest and juice of the lemon that are primarily used to flavor the pie. The pith is typically removed or minimized when using lemons in recipes to prevent any unwanted bitterness. So, you can enjoy a deliciously tangy and refreshing lemon pie without worrying about the pith affecting the taste.
