I have two boxes of left over Nilla Wafers from various parties and events that I needed to use up… plus two lemons. I wanted to make something different (other than a muffin or cupcake or bread) with this stuff, so I searched the internet for all kinds of inspiration!
I came across a few recipes for pie crusts made with Nilla Wafers, lemon meringue pies, and some tarts… I decided to combine a few of the ideas together to make one delicious dessert. This creation is a cross between a pie and a tart… mainly because I didn’t have a tart pan and I didn’t really want to go all out and make a lemon meringue pie.
It starts with a pre-baked Nilla Wafer pie crust then I fill it with a sweet lemon filling… bake it and let it cool. Then I top it all off with my favorite raspberry preserve and a drizzle of white chocolate and put it in the fridge to set. Now, if I wanted to get really fancy… I’d dollop each slice with some heavy cream and top with a few fresh raspberries. But, let’s not get too carried away with ourselves!
