How to Store Strawberry Lemon Chess Pie

Lemon Chess Pie is meant to be served room temperature, and can be stored that way too. The high sugar content prevents the pie from going bad.

Because we are adding Strawberry Pie Filling to the pie, this version needs to be refrigerated, then brought to room temperature about 2 hours before serving.

Just cover tightly with plastic wrap or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Can you Freeze Strawberry Lemon Chess Pie?

Chess pie freezes really well.

After chilling, slice the pie into individual servings, then placing the pie in an airtight container, with pieces of parchment or wax paper separating the pie slices to keep them from sticking to each other.

Thaw on the counter overnight then serve.

About the Ingredients for Strawberry Lemon Chess Pie

Pie Crust – Use a ready-made deep dish pie crust, or your own favourite pastry recipe.

Sugar – Use granulated white sugar here.

Cornmeal – You can make Lemon Chess Pie with no cornmeal if desired. The cornmeal acts like a thickener. To counter leaving it out, add less lemon juice and go for more lemon zest. You may need to add a little more flour to get it just right.

Flour – The flour is also here as a thickener.

Eggs – Use room temperature eggs,

Butter – Just salted butter here.

Lemons – Half a cup of lemon juice requires about 3-4 medium lemons. Don’t skip the zest, it gives the best lemon flavour!

Strawberry Pie Filling – Just store bought strawberry pie filling here. Super easy!
