4.8 stars from 4 ratings of lemon cake pie with lemon graham cracker crust


Lemons are actually a very good food to include in your diet. They are a good source of folate, potassium, and vitamin C. Folate and vitamin C are especially important nutrients for children as they are developing.

Lemons are also known to be a good way to help flush your body of unwanted chemicals. Drinking lemon juice diluted with water each day is a cleansing agent for your liver.

If it were not enough that this amazing little fruit is such a great addition to our meals and desserts, we find it has properties that make it a healthful addition to our diet.

The Cake Pie

When I found this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It is contained in my old Betty Crocker Cookbook that was published in 1961. It intrigued me that it would be called a cake pie.

You will see after it is baked how it got its name. It has a cake-like texture on the top but on the inside it is creamy. As you bite into a piece, your tastebuds do a happy dance! The sweet and the sour, the cake and the pudding texture are a perfect combination.

The crust that was called for was your usual flour crust. However, I decided to make a graham cracker crust that included the addition of lemon cookies.
