Joanna Gaines Lemon Pie recipe is by far one of the best recipes I’ve made to date. I came across it while skimming through the Magnolia magazine last spring, and I instantly knew this was the dessert I was making for Easter dinner. I’m so glad I did because this dish was a hit! It’s light, refreshing and so easy to make. The rustic simplicity of this pie is stunning. There’s something I love about recipes that are simple to make and require only a handful of ingredients. They’re the recipes that come out unbelievably good, and the ones I make over and over again.
I’ve really come to enjoy simple gatherings. In particular every holiday or birthday Lances family, Lance, and I will all gather around the table with either homemade cake or pie to celebrate. Although it’s simple, it’s special and this is one of the reasons I created my blog. I want to provide great recipes with good conversation to you. Like we are all sitting around the table enjoying this pie and chatting together. I hope you love Joanna Gaines’s Lemon Pie just as much as I do!
