Lemon Supreme Pie Recipe

Lemon Supreme Pie Recipe

A friend and I often visit a local restaurant for pie and coffee. When they stopped carrying our favorite, I got busy in the kitchen and created this version, which we think tastes even better! The combination of the cream cheese and tart lemon is wonderful. —Jana Beckman, Wamego, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Frozen deep-dish pie shell
  • LEMON FILLING:
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 4 to 5 drops yellow food coloring, optional
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
  • 2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups whipped topping
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  • 1. Line unpricked pie shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. For lemon filling, combine 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in water until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; add the remaining sugar. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat; stir in butter, lemon peel and food coloring if desired. Gently stir in lemon juice. Cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  • 3. For cream cheese filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in whipped topping and lemon juice. Refrigerate 1/2 cup for garnish. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture into pie shell; top with lemon filling. Refrigerate overnight.
  • 4. Place reserved cream cheese mixture in a pastry bag with a #21 star tip; pipe stars onto pie. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 6-8 servings.
