Pie Month Countdown: Lemon Pies!


What’s better on a sweltering summer day than a nice cold glass of lemonade? An ice cool slice of lemon pie, of course!

The triple-threat combination of rich crust, tart lemon, and sweet whipped topping can come together in a variety of mouth-puckering ways. Feeling old fashioned? Experience the ease of a no-bake lemon ice-box pie (hint: top with fresh basil for a zesty twist!). Yearning to sink your teeth into a slice of mile high citrusy-sweetness? Try your hand at a classic lemon meringue (just make sure you whip your egg whites until they form stiff peaks!).

There’s really no way to lose with a lemon-filled pastry. And the more time you spend squeezing those yellow harbingers of tasty-tartness, the more vitamin C and potassium your pie will possess! Is your mouth watering yet? Pucker up and dive in to ZocDoc’s top 25 lemon pies:
