    Lemon Cloud Pie

    My fanilies favorite lemon pie
    This pie is a 1959 winner in the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest.

    one pie crust baked and cooled:
    1 cup sugar
    3 tbl. cornstarch
    1 cup water
    1/3 cup lemon juice
    2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    4 oz. cream cheese, softened and cubed
    2 tsp. grated lemon peel
    1/2 cup whipping cream

    In a medium saucepan; combine sugar and cornstarch; mix well. Stir in water, lemon juice and egg yolks. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture thickens and boils. Boil for 1 minute. Add cream cheese and lemon peel, stirring until cream cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool to room temperature.
    In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup whipping cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the lemon mixture.
    Spoon filling evenly into cooled pie shell. Cover surface with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours. Garnish with whipping cream.
