The Cooking Collective: Magnolia’s Lemon Pie

It’s no question that Chip and Joanna Gaines are interior design mavens. We’ve all watched their journey unfold on HGTV, and while Fixer Upper may be ending, it’s certainly not the end for these two. We were thrilled to hear about the announcement of Joanna’s first cookbook, Magnolia Table, and just had to try out one of her recipes!

One thing that is always welcomed at the studio is dessert. We aren’t a picky group of gals, so whether it’s salty, sweet, chocolatey, fruity, we’re game. With the arrival of this beautiful Minnesota spring weather, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to whip up something citrusy and fresh. We chose to make Joanna’s lemon pie which only took 20 minutes to make and was completely gone in half of that.

Just like her design aesthetic, this recipe was light, airy, and homey. It got us so excited to try out more recipes from Magnolia Table and we hope this recipe inspires you to create something delicious in your kitchen as well!
