Easy Lemon Pie


Nothing beats this all-time, easy classic. It’s fresh, zesty, lemony and creamy. Ohhhh heaven!


You’ll need:

1 package of storebought pie dough

5 eggs

150g caster sugar

2 dl full-fat cream

2 lemons

powdered sugar



Grease a pie tin (approx. 22 cm or 9 inch) with butter or oil, dust with flour and line with the pie dough. Trim and neaten the edges, then prick the base with a fork. Chill the tin for 20 minutes in the freezer.

Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. Bake the pastry for 10 minutes or until golden brown, then remove from the oven.

Lower the temperature of the oven to 350°F/180°C.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and cream. Add lemon juice & zest and mix shortly.

Pour the filling into the pie tin. Bake for an additional 30 minutes, it’s okay if the middle of the pie is still a bit wobbly. 

Allow the pie to cool down completely before serving.

  1. Dag Louie,

    Zoals je mama je deze morgen al zei aan de telefoon, vroeg ik mij af of het mogelijk is een 'bestelling' te plaatsen? Ik zou tegen vrijdag 14 september graag 1 'fijne notencake met chocoladeglazuur'en eventueel 1 citroentaart gehad hebben (nog niet zeker, gaat er vanaf hangen hoeveel volk ik over de vloer zal krijgen). Denk je dat dit mogelijk is? Zoja, laat je me dan ook de prijs weten?
    Je mag me antwoorden via email: astrid_delmeulle@hotmail.com.

    Groetjes, Astrid
