One of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving traditions is our Thanksgiving Eve Pie Night. One of the great perks of getting married is getting to take on some new family traditions. And while my husband’s family doesn’t have a lot of holiday traditions, but when it comes to Thanksgiving, Pie Night on the eve of turkey day is their. I love it…. and so does everyone else. You can get all the Pie Night details here.
In fact, I would venture to say that Thanksgiving Eve Pie Night is better than the turkey dinner itself. What’s not to love about getting to try a whole buffet of delectable pies?
Lemon Sour Cream Pie
My sister in law Rachel made this lemon sour cream pie a few years ago and since then, it has showed up at every. single. pie night. Besides our Blueberry Sour Cream pie (hmmm. sensing a trend here?), it’s the most requested pie we have at our pie nights. And for good reason.
The pie is rather simple to make. It does take a little time at the stove (which can be tricky with little ones around), but if you make during nap time or after bed time, you can whip this pie out in no time.
It’s just that good and we all request her to make it.
What’s To Love About This Pie
I love the texture– a smooth, creamy one.
I love the flavor– slightly tart, slightly tangy, slightly sweet.
I love that it’s something different than the tradition apple, pumpkin, or chocolate pies that usually make a debut.
Oh, and I LOVE that it can be made in advance!
Since we switch off who we celebrate Thanksgiving dinner with every other year, I knew I needed to make one of these Lemon Sour Cream pies for my family.
I always get to indulge, so it was about time they tried this cream, not-too-sweet, lemony goodness in a baked pie crust.
You can thank my sister-in-law for sharing this recipe with me and the gal at our-everyday-art.com for originally sharing the recipe with her.
This Lemon Sour Cream Pie recipe is a keeper.
