Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted

Lemon Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3.5 oz instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

Whipped Cream Topping

  • 1 cup heavy cream cold
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • lemon zest and slices, raspberries and mint to garnish pie

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust

  • Lightly spray a 8" - 9.5" pie pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter in a small bowl. Press the crumb mixture into the prepared pie pan. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to really press the crust down. Chill pie crust for at least 30 minutes before filling.

Lemon Cheesecake Filling

  • In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add pudding mix and beat until creamy and combined.
  • Slowly add milk, beating until creamy, thick and smooth.
  • Beat in lemon zest.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pie shell.
  • Chill for at least 3 hours. The pie will set up firmly during this time.

Whipped Cream

  • In a large bowl, whip heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add in sugar and extract and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread whipped cream on top of chilled pie.
  • Top with additional lemon zest.
  • Garnish with lemons, mint, and raspberries before serving, if desired

Notes

  • A store bought graham cracker crust can be used instead (as I did in the video) if you prefer. 
  • The graham cracker crust can be baked if you prefer. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake for 7 minutes.
  • Instead of using freshly whipped cream, you can also use frozen whipped topping - just thaw first!
