One day, some odd decades ago I wanted to make a quick easy Lemon pie. I bought a package of Jello Lemon pudding and pie filling. On the side of the box it said, "Classic pie Meringue." I thought it meant a pudding pie with meringue until I read the direction. Well, I read, made it (of course I tweeked it) & came up with the most wonderful easy Lemon Meringue pie.

I had two neighbors who loved Lemon Meringue Pie & thought they were connoisseurs of Lemon Meringue. So I made a pie. I knew if they thought it was from real lemons & good then it wasn't my imagination how great the pie was.

How to Make Easy Pezzy Lemon Curd or Lemon Meringue Pie


  • 1I love Meyer Lemons so that is what I always use.
    I live in California so Meyer lemons are not hard to find here. Almost every neighbor has at least one tree in their yard. I ususally get a huge bag full and squeeze them to use during the year. I zest the skins and freeze the zest to and some I dry in the oven on low heat.

    Follow directions on box. The only thing your are going to do different is adding the 1/2 cup lemon juice and instead of the 1/2 cup of water and lemon zest.
  • 2For those who don't like "Puker Power" use 1/4 lemon juice and 1/4 cup water.

    I love Pucker Power..so I use the 1/2 cup of lemon juice.
  • 3Note:
    Always spread the Meringue so that it touchs the pie crust. This prevents the Meringue from shrinking when you put it in the oven to brown the meringue lightly.
