Home chefs that have made this pie comment on how the tart lemon and thick cream cheese complement each other well and how it’s nice to try something different from the overdone lemon meringue.

One reviewer said, “I am a huge fan of lemon pie, but this recipe is more than your run of the mill lemon pie. It’s over the top with goodness! I have made this for catering, potlucks, dinners, etc and every time it is served I get rave reviews. Thanks for this great recipe!”

The recipe takes about an hour and needs to be refrigerated overnight. The pie is big enough to serve 8 people. It’s definitely not something you want to rush, but the end result is worth the work. To make your pie look like it came from a bakery, use this ceramic pie dish for perfectly grooved edges. A few bakers in the recipe reviews said that they cut the cornstarch in the lemon filling by one tablespoon to make it a little less thick.
