Lemon pie is a great dessert because the tartness of the lemon cuts down on the sweetness, making for flavors that are perfectly balanced. Following is a discussion of different types of easy lemon pies and some suggestions for making them.
Lemon meringue pie is, of course, the lemon pie favorite, and you can make a very easy version using pre-made pie crust and a pudding and pie filling mix. Prepare the mix according to the package (Rawleigh’s lemon dessert mix is a good choice because it’s smooth and creamy even though it’s nonfat), pour it into the pre-made pie crust, and then the only work you have to do is to whip the meringues.
Lemon chess pie is a lemon pie you may not have tried yet, but it’s delicious. Lemon chess pie is made with a filling of four eggs, 1 ½ cups sugar, ½ cup melted butter, two tablespoons cornmeal, the juice from one lemon and 1 tablespoon lemon peel. Mix all of the ingredients together and pour them into an unbaked pie shell. Bake for 35 minutes at 325 degrees.
Frozen lemon pie is the easiest lemon pie to make. All you need is one can of frozen lemonade concentrate, one tub of thawed Cool Whip, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and a graham cracker crust pie shell. Whip the lemonade, Cool Whip and condensed milk in the blender, pour into the pie crust, and freeze it. This lemon pie needs to be thawed for about 15 minutes before serving or it will be too hard to eat. You can also add one can of crushed pineapple to the mixture for a little added sweetness if the tartness is too much for you.
Lemon cherry cheesecake pie is a more involved recipe, but it makes for a delicious dessert. Basically, you do the same thing as for the frozen lemon pie, but add one cup of cottage cheese and one envelope of unflavored gelatin and cut down the lemonade concentrate to half a can. When the pie is frozen, top it with one can of cherry pie filling and you’ll have a delicious pie that tastes just like cheesecake.
