Temperatures have been getting warmer (knock on wood) and it has begun to feel like spring is right around the corner… finally! This has been one of the longest winters. I say that because the amount of times it has snowed more than just an inch or two have felt overwhelming.

With spring in the air and Easter approaching next month I wanted to do a spring recipe. This Lemon Cream Pie really hit the spot and instantly became one of my new favorite pies. The lemon flavor is not at all overwhelming but rather subtle and refreshing. The cream really balances it out and the vanilla wafer crust is the perfect crust for this particular pie.

This is a must try pie! It is simple and absolutely delicious!
