The recipe was on the box of pudding mix. It is great.

Top Review by Ms B.

This is such a simple standard in our house. My hubby loves lemon pie, and I don't always want to make the effort to make it from scratch. The flavor of this simple shortcut is great, and many don't even recognize it as coming from a box. I don't always include the meringue, as sometimes fresh berries suit our mood better as a topper. I have also used the recipe to make little tarts for special events.
