Lemon Curd pie

Grace has asked for the recipe so here it is...

Make & bake pie crust

Make lemon curd...but reduce liquid to make it thicker
Add half a box of cream cheese to curd while still warm ( mix until cheese melts)
put the whole thing in fridge

While waiting for it to cool take one pint of whipping cream and make until super thick add vanilla sugar and 4 tablespoons powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons butter...whip until thick ( not the soft fluffy whip cream that you put onto pies) toss in fridge....when lemon curd is cold fold in whip cream mixture....put in pie crust and then back to fridge....

I also make this and layer the mixture in lemon cake and then frost the whole thing with whipped cream...Bruno like the cake better than the pie....

That sounds absolutely wonderful!! Williams Sonoma actually makes an incredible premade lemon curd. Of course they are very proud of all their products and it's really pricey. I'll try this soon and let you know how it went!! Thanks!!
