In honor of my sweet husband, Scott,
I wanted to make an
Old Fashioned Lemon Pie like the one he once ate
at Lois’ Restaurant back in Donalsonville, Ga.
The restaurant is gone now but we have many memories
of eating there. We even
had our rehearsal dinner there
twenty years ago this December!
That deserves a pie:)
Luckily I had just received
a few boxes of Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies!
They make cookies and much more that are free of the top
8 allergens….including wheat and peanuts.
Did I mention that they are the nicest people in the world too?
If you ever get a chance, pick up a pack of
Enjoy Life Cookies and you will agree
how good their cookies
For this recipe, I used the box of
Enjoy Life Vanilla Honey Graham Crust
One Box ELF Vanilla Honey Graham
1/3 Cup Honey
Using a large gallon size ziploc, put the cookies inside and lock closed letting all of the air
out of the bag. Then crush the cookies with a large spoon ….
crush them to crumbs.
Pour the honey and Green Valley Lactose Free Kefir in and mix with a rubber
spatula. Allow the crumbs to soak up the liquid for a minute. Preheat your oven to 355*.
Place the wet crumbs in a no stick (spray with gf oil) 9 x 9 pan. You can use a pie plate but
I like my non stick pans! They make for easy clean up. Pat out and flatten like a
crust, making sure all the bottom is covered and even. Then bake for 15 minutes.
Now for the Lemon Filling!
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tbsp Corn Starch
1 Tbsp Fresh Grated Lemon Zest
1/4 or Juice of One Large Lemon
3 Egg Yolks
1 Cup Lactose Free & Gluten Free Green Valley Organics Plain Kefir
1 Cup Lactose Free & Gluten Free Green Valley Organics Sour Cream
Combine the sugar and cornstarch…mix on low. Then add all the ingredients except the sour cream. Cook over medium heat in a double boiler…don’t leave this….and stir constantly until thick. Allow to cool.
Fold in GF and LF Sour Cream. Then fill the pan which already has the Enjoy Life Cookie Crust. Refrigerate for a few hours until lemon filling is firm:)
Cut into squares and serve.
Thanks to Enjoy Life Foods for your sweet and wonderful allergen free cookies
that make so many children and grown ups happy…You all are the sweetest!
Also, thanks again to Green Valley Organics for the wonderful LF & GF products.
We are hooked on these wonderful companies and hope you give them a try too!
Happy 4th of July
wish you all many blessings,
