Frequently asked questions

Can I use a store-bought graham cracker crust?

Yes, you can. A store-bought graham cracker crust is a perfectly acceptable option for this recipe. It saves time and effort, and still provides that delightful crunchy contrast to the smooth lemon filling.

How far in advance can I make this pie?

This pie can be made up to 2 days in advance. Simply cover it tightly with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The whipped cream topping should be added right before serving for the best texture and appearance.

Can I use a different type of milk or cream?

While sweetened condensed milk and heavy whipping cream are recommended for this recipe, you can experiment with substitutions if needed. For the sweetened condensed milk, you could try using a plant-based alternative like coconut condensed milk. And for the whipped cream, you could use a non-dairy whipping cream or even whipped coconut cream.

Can I freeze this pie?

Yes, you can freeze this pie. However, it is best to freeze it without the whipped cream topping. Allow the pie to cool completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. It can be frozen for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and top with freshly whipped cream.

Can I use a different type of citrus fruit?

Yes, you can. While lemon is the traditional choice for this pie, you can easily swap it out for other citrus fruits like lime, orange, or grapefruit. Just adjust the amount of juice to suit your desired level of tartness.
