Lemon Velvet Cream Pie - hands down THE BEST lemon pie EVER!!! Everyone raves about this pie. Graham cracker crust, gelatin, egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, whipping cream and lemon juice, powdered sugar. Can make a day or two in advance and top with fresh whipped cream before serving. I wanted to lick my plate! A must for all your holidays and dinner parties! #pie #dessert #lemonpie
Combine all ingredients and press against sides and bottom of springform pan. (I use a measuring cup to do this - works great!) Set aside.
In a small bowl soften gelatin in water 5 minutes. Heat in microwave for 14 seconds; set aside.
In large bowl combine egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk. With an electric mixer, beat on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes until well combined. Beat in gelatin, whipping cream and salt on low speed. Add lemon juice and beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Pour into prepared crust.
Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until center of pie looks set when gently shaken; cool on wire rack 1 hour. Cover loosely and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Place the heavy cream in a chilled mixing bowl. Whip until the whisk begins to leave tracks in the bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla and whip until the cream holds a medium peak. Spread on top of pie.
Can make the pie in advance and refrigerate before serving. I suggest adding the whipped cream right before serving.Can substitute cool whip for fresh whipped cream.
