Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Pie

"A Weight Watcher-friendly, light, yummy summertime pie - perfect for picnics! Super quick & easy to make. It can be made ahead and frozen for up to two weeks. I'll admit, it tastes better with LOTS of whipped cream, but you lose out on your WW-friendliness. Unless, of course, you use fat free Cool Whip!"

Questions & Replies

  1. How do I make a key lime pie?
  2. I followed the instructions but how long does it take to completely firm?
  3. I want to use a regular pir crust, flour) do I need to cook the pie crust before putting the lemon mixture in before filling? Thanks so much!


  1. I love this recipe, (but I don't use the low-fat ingredients.) Just a quick tip: a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk is the same as 11 ounces by volume. The "14 ounces" listed on the can must be by weight. I have dirtied a measuring cup several times before realizing this. Next time I will simply empty the whole can directly into the bowl and save myself a dish to wash!
  2. Why would you even think about low fat and reduced calorie items in an otherwise great recipe? I used full fat everything...and it was awesome.
  3. Super easy recipe, I was able to throw this together fairly quickly and it was very good. I had some lemons getting soft that I didn't want them to go to waste so I looked up some easy recipes. I made this, but my version wasn't light. I used what I had on hand and it was regular all fat, but my fiance loved it. The bite I took was very good. I am excited to try it again as the light version. Thank you very much for sharing! :)
  4. Made this with limes from our tree and it was so good! I do see what Lynn means by "grainy", not sure if it is from the eggs or the condensed milk, but it isn't bad - it is more like body or texture.
  5. This is so good and so easy to do. Even my son enjoyed it a lot. Thanks Dea Doo :) Made for the Best of 2011 cookbook tag game
