Once you have all your ingredients ready, it is time to start piecing everything together. Follow these easy steps to make a Lemon Supreme Pie that will leave everyone wanting more.

Step 1: Prepare the Lemon Filling

First, begin by making the lemon filling. In a saucepan, mix 1 1/4 cups of sugar divided, 6 tablespoons of cornstarch, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Then, stir in 2 cups of water and 6 tablespoons of lemon juice, along with the rind of 2 lemons. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until it thickens.

Step 2: Add Cream Cheese Filling

Next up is making the cream cheese filling. In a mixing bowl, beat 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, until it is smooth. Add in 1/4 cup of confectioners’ sugar and fold in 1/2 cup of whipped topping.

Step 3: Pour Into Pie Shell

Now it’s time to pour your prepared fillings into your pie crust. Use a deep-dish pie crust for this recipe as we want it to be rich and flavorful. Alternatively, use a frozen pie shell for convenience.

Step 4: Swirl Cream Cheese into Lemon Filling

To give this pie its signature “Supreme” look, spoon the cream cheese filling onto the lemon filling surface and using a knife or toothpick swirl it around.

Step 5: Refrigerate Pie

Once all the fillings are in place and swirled about, refrigerate the pie to allow everything to settle together so that it sets properly. This takes at least four hours or can be done overnight.

That’s it! You now have a delicious Lemon Supreme Pie ready to be devoured.

Substitutions and Variations

Just like any recipe, you can make substitutions and variations to suit your personal preferences.

For the crust, you can use a frozen pie crust, biscuit base or graham cracker crust for an easy dessert. You can also make it a gluten-free or keto-friendly option by using almond flour or coconut flour.

If you want something different than lemon filling, try raspberry, blueberry, or even a classic belizean flavor. Edwards offers a box of lemon supreme pie filling that’s perfect for trying out this recipe at home. You can also make it sugar-free or vegan to reduce calories and add to the health aspect of the dish.

The combination of cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar isn’t everyone’s favorite, but you can always try whipped cream with lemon zest as an alternative topping. You may also like a lemon meringue pie where boiled egg whites are used instead of whipped cream.

If you want to get creative with the recipe ingredients, you might try adding fresh berries like raspberries or blackberries as part of the filling or topping them off with whipped cream.

With so many possible variations available for this recipe, there’s always something new and exciting to explore in every bite.

This pie is such a wonderful delight on its own, but can also be paired with some other desserts for an indulgent dessert spread.

If you want to make things even more magical, try adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The combination of the creamy ice cream and tangy filling makes for an irresistible contrast.

Ah, the lemon supreme pie recipe. It always reminds me of summers spent in my grandparents’ farm, where we used to enjoy fresh pies with a dollop of whipped cream while watching the sunset. But enough of reminiscing, let’s talk about how to make-ahead, store and reheat this mouthwatering dessert.

First things first, can you make this lemon supreme pie ahead of time? You bet! In fact, it is recommended to make this pie at least a day before serving to let it set properly. Simply prepare the lemon filling and cream cheese filling separately according to the recipe instructions, then chill them in their respective bowls, well covered with plastic wrap.

When ready to assemble the pie, remove both fillings from the fridge and give them a good stir. Pour half of the lemon filling into your pre-baked crust, then add the cream cheese filling on top. Finish off with the remaining lemon filling and smooth out with a spatula. Return to the fridge for at least two hours (or overnight) before serving.

How about storing? Lemon supreme pie can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to five days. If you have any leftovers, make sure they are well-wrapped or in an air-tight container so they don’t pick up any unwanted flavors in your fridge.

Now for reheating. Ideally, you want to eat this dessert cold; however, if you prefer it slightly warmed up or if you’re trying to salvage a leftover slice that has been refrigerated for too long, here’s what you need to do: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place your slice(s) of pie onto a baking sheet and cover lightly with foil. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until heated through.

That’s all there is to it! Enjoy your lemon supreme pie anytime without any hassle by following these make-ahead, storing and reheating tips.

Tips for Perfect Results

Baking is a science, and every recipe has its own unique formula that can determine its success or failure. With Lemon Supreme Pie Recipe, achieving perfection may take a bit of practice, but with the following tips, you’ll be on your way to creating an irresistible dessert that everyone will love.

Firstly, always use fresh lemons for both the lemon filling and the cream cheese filling. Fresh lemon juice and zest provide an unmistakable tang and bright flavor that canned or bottled juice just can’t replicate. Use a microplane zester to remove only the yellow part of the rind as it contains the most fragrant oils, while avoiding the white pith that can make your pie bitter.

It’s important to pay attention to the cornstarch measurement in this recipe as too little will result in a runny filling and too much will cause your pie to thicken too much. Make sure to measure accurately.

Another tip is to keep all ingredients at room temperature, particularly for the cream cheese filling. Softened cream cheese is easier to work with and combines more smoothly with the sugar and lemon juice than cold cream cheese does.

When baking the Lemon Supreme Pie, be sure to shield your pie crust edges with foil during the first 25 minutes of baking at 375°F, then remove it for even browning until done. Doing this prevents overcooked crust edges.

Lastly, after letting your Lemon Supreme Pie cool completely on a wire rack, place it in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving. This lets all the flavors meld together perfectly while ensuring that your pie sets up properly.

Following these tips will help you achieve a perfect Lemon Supreme Pie every time!
