You are in for such a treat with this perfectly sweet homemade lemon pie!

Sweet lemon desserts are hands down some of our favorite desserts to enjoy as a family. I’ll never forget seeing my boys face when they came home from school and saw this vibrant pie sitting on the kitchen counter. We all grabbed a fork and cut some slices to enjoy together. There’s nothing more I love than baking for my family. I just know they’ll love these fun memories in the kitchen we have and share it with their children someday. I always make it a point to bake a little extra and it always results in cherishing these priceless memories.

It’s always a pleasure partnering with Karo® Syrup to bring you dessert recipes great for any occasion. I was inspired by Karo’s Lemon Dream Pie recipe and added my own spin on it.

The texture Karo® Syrup brings to your baking is like no other. You’ll always find it stocked in my pantry for all of my baking needs throughout the year and you’ll find that it is a key ingredient to have around whenever you’re baking. Again, I love surprising my family with delicious desserts to see the smiles on their faces. I think I might bake this up again for Pi Day because they just loved it so much! I encourage you to bake up this sweet surprise for friends and family with Pi Day right around the corner. I definitely will be baking  a little extra to show my loved ones I am thinking about them!

    Oh my God….Lemon and spring…they just go together. This looks amazing and so fresh. I like the spin you put on it. I looked at the other recipe and I am going to try yours. Thank you for another good recipe from your blog.

    Delicious!! My dad loves lemon desserts and I just made him a lemon cake for his birthday last night…. But Father’s Day will be here soon and this would be the perfect June treat!

    This looks SO good! I can almost taste the lemon just looking at these pics! I bet the texture of the filling is heavenly!

    Lemons are so ideal to use this time of year and this pie sounds like it would be an excellent one! I have several lemons I’ll need to use soon and this would be the ideal solution!

    Hmmm, I guess I’m going to have to search for some light corn syrup (not common in the Netherlands!) because that pie looks absolutely delicious! Love a good lemon pie, and this gets me hungry.
