Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10
  • 1 sleeve of graham crackers, crushed into crumbs (about 1½ cups of crumbs)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 can sweet and condensed milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • the zest and juice of one large lemon (approx 1 tbsp zest and ¼-1/3 cup juice
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼-1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If making your own crust, combine graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar and melted butter, mix until completely combined and press into the bottom of a pie pan. If you don't have one you can use a 9 inch circle cake pan or a 8x8 baking dish.
  3. Bake crust for 5-7 minutes. If using a dark dish only bake it for 5 minutes
  4. While crust is baking, combine the sweet and condensed milk, sour cream, lemon zest and lemon juice in a medium sized bowl Whisk together until smooth.
  5. When the crust finishes baking remove it from the oven and pour the filling in. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven an let cool completely. Once pie is cooled, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Can make up to two days ahead of serving if needed.
  6. Make the Strawberry syrup (you can do this while pie cooks or after) by pureeing the two cups of strawberries, it will end up being about a cup of puree. Pour it into a sauce pan and add ½ cup of granulated sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Once it is boiling, reduce heat to a heavy simmer and stir continuously for 4-6 minutes or until syrup starts to thicken, Add lemon juice and remove from heat. Syrup will continue to thicken as it cools.
  7. Store syrup in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to serve.
  8. Right before serving make whipping cream by combining heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beating on high with a hand mixer, or in your mixer, until it thickens and can hold it's shape.
  9. Serve pie by drizzling a tbsp of strawberry syrup over each piece and finishing it off with a dollop of homemade whipping cream. Enjoy!
