Treat Day Wednesday / Love the Pie Day

I did have an awesome treat day planned but then remembered an equally awesome idea from Cheryl at Tidy Mom.  So I’m combining my Treat Day Wednesday with her Love the Pie Day.

Come join Love the Pie with TidyMom  sponsored by Cherokee USA, Le Creuset, Wilton, Bags by Bloom and  Harvard Common Press

The favourite pie in our house is Lemon Pie.  Another simple idea that warms the heart and the first one that came to mind.

So in honour of the two great days, I give you mini lemon pies.


Recipe: Lemon Curd (adapted from the Joy of Cooking)

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  1. In a medium sauce pan, whisk eggs, sugar and lemon until lightened in colour.
  2. Add lemon juice and butter.
  3. Cook over medium heat until the butter is melted and the mixture thickens, simmer gently for a few seconds.
  4. Pour mixture through a sieve to make it a smooth curd.
  5. Let cool, cover and refrigerate to thicken.
  6. Add to a pre-baked mini pie shell (I used store bought).
  7. Drizzle with white chocolate!
  8. Enjoy


That’s it, it’s so simple.

Thanks for looking.

  1. These are so pretty! I've never made an egg based dessert - I need to try it!

  2. These are adorable! I also used to make lemon pie using the Sherriff box filling until several months ago when I tried doing it from scratch. There is no going back!

  3. This pie looks like a treat any day of the week, we would really enjoy this recipe. My very best wishes to you and your family for a blessed Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you again real soon!
