I absolutely love getting together with friends and family to enjoy a meal. Everyone brings their favorite dish or dishes and we sit around together talking and eating way too much. That's my kind of dinner party.
Last week I was assigned dessert for a dinner party with some close girlfriends. I usually do a cheesecake or something chocolate in times like this, but I was in the mood to make something different. I was talking to my mom when the Lemon Cream Pie recipe was born, so she definitely deserves partial credit.
This pie is so easy and absolutely delicious. It was a hit at the party and the perfect end to a great night with friends.
