Are you feeling lucky? You certainly will be full of luck after finishing a slice of this lemons cream pie topped with cereal marshmallows.

Lucky Lemon Cream Pie 2

The math nerd and food lover sides of me join forces today to celebrate #PiDay! I have not missed posting on this day in all the years I have been blogging ::knock on wood::. To make sure my streak continues I baked up some luck, quite literally. I used a generic brand of frosted oat cereal with marshmallows (aka Lucky Charms), but separated the marshmallows to be used as topping and then crushed the rest to be used as the crust! And in between the two? A creamy lemon filling topped with homemade whipped cream because nothing else will do. I wouldn’t blame you if you went into this face first, but don’t forget to check out the rest of the pie recipes shared today just below the next image!

Makes 1 pie


4 oz. frosted oats cereal with marshmallows (such as Lucky Charms) (frosted oats only, reserve marshmallows), crushed

3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted


1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

4 egg yolks

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 Tbsp grated lemon zest, plus 1/2 cup lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

1/8 tsp salt


1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tsp powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

Reserved cereal marshmallows from the crust


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan with nonstick spray, set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cereal crumbs and butter. Stir together to moisten the crumbs, then pour into the pie pan. Press firmly onto bottom and up the side of the pie pan, using the flat bottom of a glass to ensure that the crust is even. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly golden.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling. In a large bowl, whisk the condensed milk, egg yolks, cream, lemon zest, and salt. Add the lemon juice and stir until combined. Pour filling into the warm crust and return to the oven for 15-17 minutes, or until the center only jiggles a little. Allow to cool on a wire rack before placing in fridge to cool completely, about 4 hours (or overnight).
  4. Before serving, in a medium bowl whip the cream and sugar into soft peaks. Add the vanilla and whip into stiff peaks. Spread over the pie, sprinkle with reserved marshmallows, slice, and serve.
