Lemon Supreme Pie
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + cooling Bake: 25 min. + chilling
Haven’t made it yet bcz I was looking for a legit brand of lemon pie filling-found it
If you follow the baking directions for this pie, you will be sorely disappointed as it will be burned
I have made this several times. It's a good pie but I don't care for the rubbery cornstarch texture of the lemon. I just make the lemon layer like lemon meringue pie filling, and I have even made it with lemon curd. It's still a good pie, either way.
This is overrated. It doesn't have a strong lemon flavor, and it tastes more like eating cream cheese out of the tub.
Can't wait to make this yummy looking pie. Years ago when I worked at Village Inn, they had a lemon supreme pie that was just like this. It was always mine and my husband's favorite. I like lemon meringue pie, but this one is even better, as I love any dessert which incorporates a sweet cream cheese layer.
The lemon filling is way too tart. I made it again with half the lemon juice and a packet of lemon jello. Way better. Also, no need for whipped topping (which is made with oil). Thin the cream cheese mixture with whole milk and no lemon juice.
I am really surprised that so many think this is better than lemon meringue pie. It was good, but it wasn't spectacular. There are many recipes online for a similar dessert called Lemon Lush, Lemon Delight, etc., that is made in a 9x13 baker. It's very, very similar in taste, makes a larger amount, and is much easier.
Filling is pretty tart, and very rich
I made this pie to take to a church luncheon. It looked pretty and tasted good. However, I can't say it was excellent and frankly I think a basic lemon meringue pie tastes better. I think the problem is that it had too much cream cheese & whipped cream in it and not enough lemon filling. I won't make it again.
I made my own pastry, and this recipe fit my deep dish pyrex pan perfectly. I used fresh lemon juice and it was extremely tart, but the cream cheese layer cut through it nicely. I am a huge classic lemon pie fan, but this is a nice twist. Like other reviewers, I cut the cornstarch by one tablespoon, and it still thickened up very quickly for me.
