Best of All Lemon Pie

contest winner icon

My Mother had requests for her lemon pie constantly and now I share her secret!


  • Box of Jello Lemon Pudding and Pie filling
  • Ad
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 6 Tbsp. sugar


Follow directions on pie filling. When you take the cooked filling off the heat add the butter and lemon juice, stir in and let cool. Pour into baked crust and top with meringue.

Directions for the meringue: Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form in glass or metal bowl, add sugar two teaspoons at a time until all sugar is absorbed and stiff peaks stand up on a spoon. Spread on cooled pie filling making sure to seal all edges of the pie crust. Bake 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Watch carefully burns easily.

What size box of pie filling? I think large but not 100% sure.

Editor's Note: The large size. Enough to fill a pie.
