Sour Cream Lemon Pie

This is my go to dessert for Easter. If you like Cyrus O'leary's Sour Cream lemon then this is the closet copy cat I have. If you have never tried it, THEN DO! Seriously it is amazing. Or take my word for it and make this one! There is something about lemon that just yells SPRING IS HERE!

Sour Cream Lemon Pie
Over medium heat

1 C Sugar

3 1/2 T Corn Starch

1 T Lemon Rind
1/2 C lemon Juice
3 Egg yolks slightly beaten
1 C. Milk.

Stir over medium heat until it thickens up. Then take off heat and ADD

1/4 C butter

Let it cool down, I never have
patience to let it cool all the way, and ADD

1 C Sour Cream

1 pie crust,(be my guest to use Marie Calendars frozen crust! I usually do!) pricked and baked.

Pour into crust and refrigerate! Its great with some Whipping Cream or even just a cold glass of milk.

Easter Cake Pops

Last year I made brownie bites just like this but with the cake ball craze all the rage, I went that direction.
You make the ears by piping with a #2 tip onto wax paper then add a toothpick to the back. once dry you flip over and put the pick on. Then stick into the cake pop..

Easter Nests again.

So I posted this last year, but didn't included the recipe. Next year Im going to combine a few different recipes I found, because all though these look more like nests then some of the others out there, I feel like the flavor can be improved upon. I found a great one that uses marshmallows and butter! So stayed tuned next year!

16 - 20 oz chocolate (i used bakers semi sweet)

1 C. Peanut Butter Microwave together for 1 min. then 30 sec.repeated til melted.

About 1 box of All Bran and 1 Bag ChowMein. (I saw about because mine wasn't goopy enough this time and I used the full amounts)

Form into nests on wax paper. Put in your choice of eggs (cadbury mini's for me please) Then place in the fridge!

Glee Cake

So one of the 12 year old girls I teach in Church invited me to her birthday party! How could I turn her down right? And for her present, what else, a cake of course. I called her mom to see if I could make it and asked if the party had a theme, Glee. What is a 12 year old is doing watching Glee, don't ask me, I just make the cakes! I wanted to keep it one layer and simple, but wasn't sure what to do so I googled it and stole a couple ideas to combine together.

Daisy Wedding Cake

This cake not only looks good, its taste good. I finally found a winner for white cake! LET ME TELL YOU, IT TASTE AMAZING. And rightfully so, it has a colossal amount of butter. I make all my pound cakes from scratch. Recipe below (for this cake, 10 inch x 6 inch rounds, I double the recipe)!
Cream Cheese Pound Cake

3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
8 ounces cream cheese
6 jumbo eggs, beaten
Pinch of salt

Begin with softened cream cheese, margarine and butter. Cream the cream cheese, margarine, butter, sugar and add beaten eggs and flour alternately. Mix very well. Pour into greased and floured tube pan. Bake in cold oven at 300 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes or when cake pulls away from sides of pan. Frost when completely cooled or leave plain.
