Connect with Dixie Crystals/Imperial Sugar:





Ingredients: 

Makes one 9 inch pie
  • 1 frozen pie crust, thawed
  • 1 cup {2 sticks}unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups Dixie Crystals sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3 egg yolks

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • whipped cream, for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Roll out pie crust and press into a 9 inch pie plate.
  3. Crimp edges with a fork and chill until ready to bake.
  4. Add butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. 
  5. Add yolks one at a time and mix on low. 
  6. Now add cooled tea, lemon zest and lemon juice and mix well. 
  7. Stir in flour, salt and cornmeal until it's all combined.
  8.  Pour into pie crust and place on a baking sheet.
  9. Bake 45-55 minutes or until crust is golden and pie is set. 
  10. You can chill until ready to serve or let sit for at least 10 minutes at room temp.
  11. Slice and top with whipped cream.
 

 Add two tea bags to 4 cups boiling water then remove from heat and let them steep for 5 minutes.
You will need 1 cup cooled tea for this pie. Use the rest to make a tall glass of iced tea!
You will need 2 heaping cups of Dixie Crystals/Imperial Sugar for this recipe.
 You can never have too much sugar in sweet tea, right?!
 Sometimes I make my own crust but in a pinch I use these frozen dough pucks.
They are from a local Texas bakery and sold at our grocery stores here in Texas.

 Roll our thawed dough then press into a 9 inch pie plate.
Crimp edges with a fork.

 Add butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl and beat until fluffy.
Add yolks one at a time and mix on low.
 Now add fresh lemon zest and lemon juice.
And pour in 1 cup of cooled tea. Mix well.
Now add the dry ingredients starting with 2 1/2 tsp of cornmeal.
This keeps the pie from being too runny.
 Add flour and salt and stir until combined.
  Pour into pie crust and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 45-55 min at 350 degrees.
You can chill until ready to serve or let sit for at least 10 minutes at room temp.


 Slice and top with whipped cream then serve.
