I hope you all are enjoying a nice relaxing week celebrating the 4th of July and if you aren’t celebrating quite yet then by all means stick around and see how you can whip up a festive, beautiful and rather delicious 4th of July treat just in the nick of time!
Since the subject of discussion is cream pies I am not going to drag out this post. Parades await me, kids need me and a lake is beckoning me so I will be short and sweet. Summer is all about refreshing and easy sweet treats. No one wants to stand in front of a hot stove or oven waiting their life away while all the fun is to be had outside. Cream pies are a staple for summer. They are perfect make-ahead treats for backyard barbecues and cookouts and although quite easy to make- they taste as if you have slaved in the kitchen for days. Bursting with decadent ingredients and amazing flavors cream pies of any variety are the way to go!
My Berry Lemon Cream Pie is so delicious you will be tempted to eat dessert first! Homemade Lemon Pudding with the flavor of honey and vanilla produces the perfect level of citrus without being to overpowering in this simple-to-fix cream pie. The graham crumbs add that small hint of texture one expects from a regular cream pie crust and the berries are well- a MUST! Just like with any pie crust, you are more than welcome to use crushed Oreos, crushed nuts, or your favorite type of cookie for the crumb layers. It’s not about “which crumb topping” you use but what makes you happy! Graham crackers make me happy so I stuck with that!
Happy Independence Day! May the Lord bless those who have served and currently serving in our country.
