While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Pucker up! November 29 is National Lemon Cream Pie Day.
Winter is when most of the brilliantly colored citrus fruits, like lemons, shine brightest. Snap out of "Bah, humbug!" mode with the sweet tang of lemon cream pie.
When it comes to the sweet concoction, the classic interpretation involves baking lemon juice, eggs, sugar and heavy cream in a gingersnap crust. If you're not quite in a Susie Homemaker state of mind, a box of lemon pudding mix for the filling always works too.
Top it with whipped cream, sprinkle on some zest and serve immediately. Now, that's how to make lemonade out of lemons.
