Simple Lemon Pie Filling

This is a super easy Lemon Pie Filling. I like this filling better than homemade, because I can usually taste too much "eggy-ness" in the homemade.

I usually pour this into a baked pie shell, but you'll see in my pictures that I used a square baking dish...and a graham cracker crust. Both ways are delicious! Filling little tart cups or mini cakes would also be YUM! I'm sure you could come up with many great ideas for this filling!

Place 1 package of cook & serve vanilla pudding and 1 package of lemon jello into a small saucepan.

Add 2 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of lemon juice, whisking to combine.

Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until thickened.

Cool slightly. Pour into desired "pie" vehicle! :-) Place in fridge to cool and set.

Once set, top with cool whip...

Cut, serve, and enjoy! :-)

That looks good and easy to make! I wonder if you could use meringue instead of the Cool Whip. Or would the filling liquefy in the oven?

Hm, I'm not sure.

I'm not too crazy about meringue - but, it doesn't take too long to brown in the oven, so I don't know if it would hurt the filling much or not?

I was wondering the same thing... but I would think since its cook and serve it should be ok...I will have to find out! I foolishly tried the instant kind once, LOL, yeah that DOES melt in the oven! (DUH!) =) But if you want a "real" lemon pie recipe that doesn't taste at all eggy, and is just deliciously tarty, I have a recipe from Jamie's grandma...
