Coconut and Lemon Cream Pie

Rating: Unrated
Coconut and lemon are probably my favorite match. This pie has an unexpected shortbread-like crust made with only coconut oil! The result is flaky, crumbly, and delicious. The creamy curd center gets an upgrade using coconut cream! If you serve immediately, the pie will be a bit messier than if you were to chill it for a few hours.

Lemon Blueberry Custard Pie

Rating: Unrated
Tart and refreshing with a smooth, creamy, meringue-like consistency. Blueberries can be omitted if necessary, but it won't be nearly as good!

Raspberry Lemon Meringue Pie

Rating: Unrated
Added additional lemon and raspberries to this classic and delicious lemon meringue pie, giving it a less-sweet and brighter flavor. Sometimes I don't make the meringue, I just cool the lemon filling for 3 hours and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a raspberry at serving time.
