Directions

  1. Fit each refrigerated pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate according to package directions; fold edges under; crimp/flute as desired.
  2. Line pastry with foil, and fill with pie weights or dried beans.
  3. Bake in a 425° oven for 5 minutes; remove weights and foil; bake 2 minutes or until light golden brown; cool crusts completely on wire racks.
  4. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and egg on low speed using an electric mixer until smooth.
  5. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over cooled pie crusts.
  6. In another bowl, whisk together all the Lemon Chess Pie Filling ingredients; spoon filling evenly over cream cheese mixture.
