Sunshine Pie

  • 5-6 ounces lemons (2-3 small lemons, 1-2 large ones)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 par baked pie crust
  • Powdered sugar and whipped cream to serve, optional

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Wash the lemons. Slice them into wedges and remove the seeds.

Place the lemons and all of the filling ingredients (lemons through granulated sugar) into a blender. Blend for about a minute, or until smooth. Depending on your blender it may take longer than a minute.

Pour the filling into par-baked pie shell. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes, or until set. The middle may be jiggly but the outside should be firm.

Cool to room temperature, then place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Before serving, dust with powdered sugar or top with whipped cream, if desired.
