Lemon Lavender Sour Cream Pie-4

Yay for Secret Recipe Club time!!  This summer just seems to have flown by.  I can’t believe only a couple of weeks left and Little Miss will be starting kindergarten and Little Mister will be going into daycare for the first time.  I will also be going back to work full time for the first time in over 5 years.  It’s like all the change is coming at the same time.  It’s crazy!

Lemon Lavender Sour Cream Pie

I made this for a bbq.  The filling was amazing.  I could have eaten the entire bowl with a spoon.  I loved it paired with the flakey all butter crust and the touch of lavender.  The original recipe called for a graham cracker crust and no lavender involved.  I can literally taste how amazing the original version would be.

Strain through a mesh sieve. This will get out any lumps and the lemon zest.

    So cool… we got each other this month!! I was stalking you and you were stalking me :) I love that you added lavender and your own crust. Now you’ve got me wanting to make this again! Happy SRCing with you :)

    I’ve missed your blog posts, Christina! Wow, this pie is gorgeous – that filling looks ridiculously smooth, creamy ‘n delicious. I love that you used lavender in your crust! Lemon ‘n lavender taste amazing together. Those are some pretty big changes, girl. It always freaks me out when babies I saw growing up start elementary school. I’m sure your kids will love school/daycare and you’ll rock the work world again.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
