I love the idea of the sour cream. The tangy aspect. Mmm. This seems so simple. I make my graham cracker crusts, so easy. 

Thanks!

This looks almost exactly like the easy Millionare pie.

 

The pudding and sour cream take the place of the Eaglebrand condensed milk and juice of 1 lemon.

 

I'm sure it will be delicious!

This looks so good, thanks for sharing!  it reminds me of my mom.... my dad was very much a meat & potatoes guy for dinner with dessert. During the summer she was always looking for desserts like this that she didn't have to turn the oven on for.  I've copied it down to make on the 4th of July,  in remembrance of my mom.

 

it's funny how a recipe can bring back so many memories and tears to my eyes.

@Knit-Chick  What a sweet way to remember your mom.  I'm sure you'll like the pie.  I've made this pie often and sometimes, I'll even add in 1/2 tsp of rum extract.  Mmmm  

Have a lovely 4th of July!

It reminds me of Millionaire pie also.  I make mine with crushed pineapple, egg yolks, pineapple Jello, frozen pineapple juice concentrate, and heavy cream.

Your recipe uses egg yolks.  How are they used in your recipe?  I've never had a Millionaire Pie but I thought, from the other recipes offered here, that no cooking was required. 

 

You have contributed a lot of good recipes to the recipe forum and I appreciate your sharing!
