I am so proud of this recipe that I created! I was inspired by another recipe I posted called Cherry Delight Cheesecake but I pretty much changed all the ingredient amounts in this recipe. I also added the lemon curd instead of the cherries. Everyone who has tasted this pie has been wowed and always beg me to make it again and again. I hope you will make it for your family and friends.

How to Make Cream Cheese Lemon Dream Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix first 3 ingredients together and press in a 9" pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool crust on a wire rack.
  2. Blend together well the powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla. Spread on completely cooled crust.
  3. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over cream cheese mixture.
  4. Spread the whipped topping over the walnuts. You will not need to use the whole container of topping.
  5. Place pie in freezer for 30 to 45 minutes until whipped topping is firm enough to spread the lemon curd on top of it.
  6. Decorate the edges and center with the Cool Whip. Add a few chopped walnuts if you desire. Then refrigerate.
  7. Note: This pie freezes well, that is if you have any left over to freeze!
