Lemon Blueberry Pie

Lemon Blueberry Pie
About ten days ago, I got a graham cracker crust out of the pantry, intending to make some kind of summery no-bake pie.  That darned pie crust just sat there and the longer I didn’t make a pie, the more it mocked me.  I would clear off the counter and there it would be, “Hi Kristen, remember me?  You were going to make a pie for your family.  You haven’t made anything all week.  Don’t you feel horrible?!”  You have never felt guilt until a store bought pie crust has mocked you.
I finally decided enough was enough.  I opened the freezer and there was some lemonade.  I haven’t ever made a lemonade pie, but I know you can.  I looked up a couple of recipes, but they all took cool whip and I only had whipping cream.   Because of my secret fear that my whipped cream will become butter, I never seem to whip it quite enough, so I knew any pie with a cool whip base wouldn’t work with my sadly droopy whipped cream. (What I really need is one of those cream whipper gun type things with the cartridges!)
So, after finding a recipe that took lemon juice, not lemonade and heavy cream, not cool whip, I tweaked it and got this pie.  It practically throws itself together in about 15 minutes, but plan ahead; it needs to be refrigerated for a few hours before serving.

  2. >OH MY GOSH!! I cannot explain to you how much I LOVE blueberry pie. SO, I feel like a dog, salivating, with my tongue sticking out at your pie. I'm just sayin'.
    Thanks for linking to TMTT.

  3. >That filling looks thick, tangy, and delicious!

    I used to underwhip my cream also and then I realized that there's a wide range between whipped cream and butter and hopefully I could manage to stop somewhere in between. And if I mess up…then at least I have something to put on my bagels!

  4. >Great idea for a cool summer pie, don't let that store bought pie crust mock you, give it a time out, you're the boss!

  5. >Lemons and blueberries are such a lovely combination, and the photo of the pie looks scrumptious! What a great recipe!

  6. >I want that whipped cream gun thing too!

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my KAF giveaway. I did see that bun pan, and I really want it, not to make hotdog buns, but to make that bun cake thing! Looks delicious.

  7. >Absolutely love anything with lemon and this looks delicious and simple enough to make for a houseful of people celebrating the 4th of July!

  8. >Anything lemony and cool is so refreshing in the summer. I love, love love lemon. We will have to try this. I like whipped cream better anyway, although it is probably a lot worse for me. But hey, it's dessert, right! Thanks for sharing on TMTT.
