Sour Cream Lemon Pie


Recipe Courtesy of Amy Robinson
"First you make a very creamy and rich egg custard. Then you stir in butter, fresh lemon juice, bits of lemon rind and sour cream. Pour this refreshing filling into a baked pie shell, chill the pie, and garnish it with sprigs of mint and thin slices of lemons."
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sour cream
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
DIRECTIONS:
1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir on medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat, and cook and stir 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Beat yolks slightly. Gradually stir 1 cup of mix into yolks. Return yolk mixture to saucepan, and bring to gentle boil. Cook and stir 2 more minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter, peel, and juice. Fold in sour cream.
3. Pour filling into baked pie shell, and cool. Top with whipped cream if desired.
