Easy Homemade Lemon Pie Recipe

This Lemon Buttermilk Icebox Pie is ridiculously good. SO good that we ate the entire pie in about two days flat. SO good, that I made another one for us the day after we finished the first pie. It really is one of the BEST lemon pies we’ve ever eaten! It is also one of the easiest pies we’ve ever made.

How to Make Lemon Buttermilk Icebox Pie

There are only a few simple ingredients in this pie. Sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest, and graham cracker crust. Whisk together the filling, pour it into a pie crust, and bake. Let the pie cool and refrigerate before serving. The most exotic ingredient in the pie is the buttermilk. The buttermilk gives the pie a unique and delicious flavor!

Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • We topped this pie with some whipped cream. You can also use cool-whip or even whip up a meringue. Either way, I promise it will taste delicious!
  • You can use a store-bought or homemade graham cracker crust.
  • The pie will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
  • Can Lemon Icebox Pie be frozen? Yes! I suggest freezing the pie without topping. When ready to serve, remove the pie from the freezer and let thaw. Top with the pie the topping of your choice before serving.
