Introducing our newest dessert: Creamy Lemon Layered Pie! A super simple dessert that can be prepare in no time at all. Today’s an extra special day, we couldn’t be happier to be participating in a fun LEMON themed recipe challenge with some of our talented blogging buddies! Be sure to pop down to the very bottom of this post to find all of the bloggers participating. You don’t miss any of their unbelievably delicious and lemony posts! When I found out that lemon was the ingredient for this month I was super excited, lemon is one of my favorite flavors! Whether used in desserts (my first choice), beverages, sides or entrees lemon is an ingredient that adds a delightful touch.

My mind started immediately turning trying to settle on a recipe. I ultimately decided upon a dessert because I desperately needed something that reminded me of springtime. We’re stuck in the doldrums of winter here in Michigan and I’m craving sunshine and warm weather. I found a super easy recipe online that I wanted to change up a tad to make it something just perfect for my family. A burst of sunshine in a pie pan!

When I said this Creamy Lemon Layered Pie is simple , I wasn’t exaggerating…at all! There’s a couple of time-saving ingredients which make this pie come together quickly. First off a store-bought prepared crust.  Yes, you could certainly prepare your own graham cracker crust, but since I was looking for FAST FAST FAST, I opted to use store-bought and it was perfect. The next item that could save you time is prepared whipped topping (yes the stuff in the tub).  I made fresh whipped cream because it’s a preference and is super easy to prepare, but once again, go ahead and use what works for you. Lemon and raspberries are a wonderful combination so I used raspberries buried within the pie and on top, but if you prefer blueberries or blackberries, give them a try. See where I’m going with this? Experiment and try whatever sounds good to you!

My entire family, even my 4-year-old enjoyed this pie. It was creamy, lemony and just the perfect little sweet for after dinner. It has already been requested again, how can I say no to that? I hope you enjoy, and be sure to visit all the yummy lemon recipes below!
