Lemon Meringue pie is one of my Mom's favorites, but being a diabetic it's not the best for her. Found this lite version in "Taste of Home" magazine and anxious to try it for her. States the diabetic exchange is 1 starch, 1 fat and 1/2 fruit. I can't vouch for that as I don't know how it's figured, but am going to try this just for her. Prep time does not include chilling time. ETA: Corrected size of pudding and jello.
- In small saucepan, combine pudding mix and gelatine.
- Add water and lemon juice.
- Stir until smooth.
- Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
- Cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until thickened.
- Remove from the heat; cool clightly.
- Pour into crust.
- Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
- Spread with whipped topping.
OMG, this pie is so easy and so good for a diabetic treat! I'm also going to try this with red Jello to make a nice pink pie for Spring (if Spring ever gets here LOL!) Thanks for posting a keeper Bonnie! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
What an easy recipe! I needed a light dessert for dinner and this went together in a flash. This isn't for the lemon meringue purists but it's a great tasting pie with little effort. I couldn't find an 8 ounce package of pudding mix so I used two smaller boxes to come close to the weight and it worked out just fine. Also, I preferred a large dollop of topping on each piece at serving time rather than covering the whole pie. Terrific! Please note: The original recipe in TOH was for 8 ounces of pudding mix and 3 ounces of gelatin mix, not the amounts shown in the recipe posted here.
