Pillsbury Bake-off Pick ME!!

Finally finished!! All my recipes are on the Pillsbury bake off web site. Hope they pick me! :)

This is my final entry for this year. . . . . unless i think of something else before Monday at midnight, LOL

Creamy Lemon cheese pie

2 packages Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies, ready to bake
12 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp Fresh lemon zest
2 tsp real lemon extract
2/3 cups granulated sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup frozen whipped topping thawed.
12 very thin slices of lemon for garnish

Bake cookies per package directions. Straight from the oven, using a spatula place cookies around the outside edge of a 9 inch pie pan. Continue layering, like fish scales, until the whole pan is covered. Let it cool completely. This will be your crust. The cookies will fuse together as they cool

Tip: Move very quickly as you layer the cookies They will become very difficult if they cool too much. If they do happen to cool warm them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds they will become soft again.

Mix together in a large bowl cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon extract,sugar and salt. With a mixer beat this mixture until lump free. A hand mixer is great for this.

Remove bowl from mixer and scrape any mixture off the beaters back into the bowl. With a rubber spatula fold in the whipped topping.

Pour this mix into the well cooled cookie crust. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. When ready to serve arrange lemon slices evenly around the edge of the pie.

Serve chilled
