When I was a kid one of the desserts I remember my mom making most often during the winter was lemon meringue pie. Truthfully, I never really appreciated the flavor of lemon back then and most just picked at the baked meringue on top and left the glob of lemon on my plate. These days, I can’t help but wonder what the heck was wrong with me, Lemon pie is incredible!
The best part is that it’s one of easiest pies to make and really requires very minimal baking time. The recipe my mom always used came right on the box of JELL-O Lemon Pudding. All you really need is the lemon pudding filling, a pie crust and whip together some meringue.
One thing I love doing is dipping my fork through the fresh lemon just before getting a fork full of pie, it gives it a little zing of sour right as the sweet lemon pudding flavor melts in your mouth.
Was there a particular pie your mother made as a kid that you remember more than the others?
