Best Easy Lemon Cream Pie


This easy  lemon cream pie is full of tangy flavor from both the lemon and the cream.  And the creamy consistency is nothing short of heavenly. Every time I have a slice I am reminded just how good it is.



  • 300g Digestive Biscuits, crushed 
  • 175g Butter, melted 


  • 3/4 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk 
  • 1/3 Cup Lemon Juice 
  • 2 Tbls Lemon Zest 
  • 3/4 Tsp Lemon Extract or 1/4 Tsp Lemon Oil

  • Pinch Salt 


  • Emlea Whipping Cream
  • Fresh Raspberries or Blueberries 
  • Lemon Slices

Preheat oven to 190C.

Mix the crushed biscuits and melted butter. Press crumbs onto the base and sides of a springform a 27cm tart pan and bake in oven for 7 minutes, then remove and let cool. 

In a small bowl combine the condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest and lemon oil or extract. Whisk with a hand balloon whisk until combined and set aside.

Enjoy! 😊
