Baker’s Square Lemon Supreme Pie Recipe
Baker’s square is a casual dining restaurant located in the Midwest, that is known for its Lemon Supreme Pie, among other flavors.
Recipe: Lemon Supreme Pie (Baker’s Square)
Baker’s Square website describes their lemon supreme pie recipe as being “layers of tangy lemon filling and cool, creamy supreme filling inside their flaky golden pie crust, then topped with real whipped cream.”
If you want to use some frozen whipped topping that you’ve thawed out for this pie, we won’t judge you. But if you have access to real heavy whipping cream, using it on top of this pie and even in the creamy cream cheese layer is going to make this pie rich and the flavor to die for! It makes such a difference in the quality. Or at least that’s our opinion.
Lemon Supreme Pie Chill Time
It’s important to allow the pie time to chill before serving it. Otherwise, you could be cutting into a warm soupy mess. Allowing it time to cool, will allow it time to setup and you’ll actually be able to make real slices.
To chill your pie, place it in the refrigerator for an hour or two until it’s completely cooled and setup. Then add your whipped cream. Adding whipped cream while the pie is still hot will cause the whipped cream to melt and turn to liquid.
If you’re in a hurry, you can speed up the chilling process by placing the pie in the freezer. It will only need 15 to 20 minutes, if you choose this method. Be careful of placing hot glass pans directly from the oven to the freezer which could cause them to crack.
Creamy Lemon Supreme: Dig Into A Work of Tart
This pie is not your average lemon pie, nor is it your average lemon meringue pie. Yes, the lemon flavor is so delicious, but the creamy aspect is what makes this pie in our opinion. Blending the cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar and the heavy cream into a smooth mixture that is rich and creamy is so wonderful. It’s what sets this pie apart.
