Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs

  • Juice and rind of 2 small lemons
  • 2-3 strawberries sliced
  • 9 to 10 frozen mini pie shells frozen

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, mix together eggs, sugar and butter over medium high heat. Stir until all ingredients are melted and are well-incorporated with each other.
  2. Add lemon juice and lemon rind. Stir.
  3. Lower heat to medium and whisk the ingredients consistently, for about 6-7 minutes, until a thick custard forms.
  4. Pour lemon custard into a bowl, covering it with plastic. Chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  5. Bake frozen pie shells according to package’s directions. Cool completely.
  6. Once everything is chilled, fill up each pie shell with custard. Top off with a strawberry slice. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You CAN make the filling beforehand. In fact, it needs to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, so you'll need to get a BIT of a headstart anyways. But I would not put the filling into the shells until just before serving. The can start to get soggy if they are out too long.
