    Description

    An easy lemon pie!

    Ingredients

    • 1 package lemon pie filling and pudding (like Durkee brand)
    • 1 refrigerated ready-made pie crust
    • 2 tbsp sugar
    • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 1/4 cups water

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. Bake crust according to box directions.
    3. Make meringue according to box directions for pie.
    4. Make lemon filling according to pie directions on box. Put hot filling in hot pie shell, and top with meringue making sure to seal to pie crust. This keeps the meringue from shrinking and the filling from weeping.
    5. Bake in 425 degree oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely.
