If you are looking for an easy and DELICIOUS dessert to contribute to your Christmas feast, I will be your new best friend. Friends, this is the easiest pie you will ever make. Not only that, it is probably one of the most scrumptious things I have ever put in my pie-hole (see what I did there?).
Bad jokes aside, make this pie. You will thank me. Your mother will thank me. Your drunk Uncle will thank me. You are all very welcome. Merry Christmas!
- 1 pre-packaged graham cracker pie crust
- 2 10-oz cans sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice (see notes for substitute)
- zest of 1 Meyer lemon
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp coconut extract
- toasted coconut flakes
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, Meyer lemon juice and zest. (NOTE: If you do not have Meyer lemons, you can substitute with half tangerine and half regular lemon juice. Use the zest from the lemon.) Mix the ingredients until they are smooth.
- Pour mixture into pre-made pie crust. (You could make your own, buy why?)
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes until you see small bubbles bubbling up on the sides of the pie.
- Allow to cool slightly before putting pie in the fridge overnight to chill.
- For the whipped cream, combine the heavy cream, sugar, and coconut extract in a bowl.
- Whisk the ingredients together on high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Pipe or spread the coconut whipped cream on top of the chilled pie.
- Sprinkle toasted coconut flakes on top and serve.
I can’t get enough of this pie and neither can my neighbors and friends. I made this for the first time over Thanksgiving and my family started planning for me to buy a food truck and sell “Chey’s Pies.”
Since I had eleventy billion Meyer lemons to use from the fall harvest of my tree, I decided to make these pies for neighbors and friends as Christmas gifts. I’m also making a few for my family’s Christmas dinner. I’m telling you, this pie is to DIE FOR!
And if you don’t have access to Meyer lemons (I’m truly sorry because they’re amazeballs), you can sub with half tangerine and half regular lemon juice. Give it a shot!
Do you have a go-to holiday pie recipe?
This is my kind of dessert! I’ll take lemon and coconut flavor over chocolate any day! And it looks easy enough for this non-baking gal to make!
oh yum this looks appetizing, I love lemon in desert especially after a heavy holiday meal. I will give it a try

I can’t wait to make this for Christmas! This looks soooo good!!! We have a Meyer lemon tree with an abundance of lemons that I had no idea what to do with. Problem solved. Thank you!!
I honestly love anything with lemon – especially dessert. This recipe looks so easy. I’m definitely going to make this. Thanks for the gorgeous recipe 🙂

I’m going to pin this – because I really need to learn more to do with lemons, since my husband loves these fresh lemony desserts but lack inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
I need to try this! Unfortunately hubby isn’t keen on lemon desserts… thanks for the substitution tip though!
