In winter, when the cold begins, you often want to return into the warm summer. And if in reality, you need to wait for some time, then on an associative level you can be there right now.

The subject of our today’s recipe is lemon pie. It is gentle and mild inside. When you’re holding it, it seems that it is about to fall apart or will melt right in the palm of your hand, leaving only a sticky trace of sugar on your hands.

That’s all thanks to butter, it moistens already wet biscuit itself and makes it to melt in your mouth. There’s a crusty sugar frosting on top with a lemon flavor. This icing makes a pleasant contrast between super gentle pie texture and crust on top.

This pie served with tea is a perfect finish of your dinner. Also, you can try to serve it with vanilla ice cream or just to add your favorite berry jam on top.
