This pie is great just the way it is but if anyone has read my reviews you know I can't leave well enough alone so... I added a box of dry instant lemon pudding for more body then took lemon sandwich cookies put them through my food processor to fine crumbs (where DOES that filling go??) then took 1 1/2 (or more) cups of the crumbs with about 5 TLB (or more) melted butter and made my crust out of that. Then took a couple spoonfuls cookie crumbs and sprinkled on top. AWESOME!! (And I don't even like lemon pie). To be even more different take 4 oz. softened cream cheese mixed well with 1/2 confectioner's sugar and spread this in the bottom of your chilled crust before putting in the lemon mixture. Read More

I made this pie for a club meeting and doubled the recipe to get 2 pies. I used pink lemonade and added a dash of red food coloring to enhance the color. My guests absolutely raved about it. I used purchased graham cracker crusts and had lots of filling to mound up. I did not freeze it as others suggested and the texture was wonderful. Not runny at all. One thing I did was to mix the condensed milk and lemonade thoroughly before adding the whipped topping. I will definitely make it again and would like to try lime concentrate next time. Read More

The women in my family have been whipping this up for years and it is STILL a favorite at get togethers. It's also SO easy and quick that we tend to make it just to cure a sweet tooth! To make it virtually fat free is simple. Use fat free Eagle Brand milk and fat free cool whip! Don't worry about the taste of the fat free Eagle Brand--it's DELISH! The consistency is a little bit thinner than regular EB but when the pie's chilled you can't tell a bit of difference! We always have trouble finding the 6 oz can of lemonade too. So we use a 12 oz and just make ourselves "suffer" through two pies;) The filling of this pie is so good that we've often joked of just whipping it up and eating it as a pudding. Hey a few crumbled graham crackers and I think it'd be a hit! Read More

This is achingly sweet but always popular. Instead of a graham cracker crust I usually make it with a homemade one consisting of 60 Ritz crackers crushed 1/2 cup butter melted 3/4 cup powdered sugar combined and sprinkled in the bottom of a 9-inch square pan. It isn't firm like a graham cracker crust but the salty/sweet combination is good with the tart/sweet filling. Read More

Yummy! I used rasberry lemonade concentrate fat free cool whip and froze the pie instead of just chilling it. To make sure the pie doesn't get soupy chill the condensed milk and make sure the concentrate is still frozen. Read More

Also known as "Eagle Brand" pie when I was a kid this one is so easy and foolproof. I agree with other reviewers that it tastes the best and has a better consistency if it is kept in the freezer. Also like others have mentioned a gingersnap crust works great with this pie. For those who think the concentrate makes it too sweet add some fresh squeezed lemon juice to subtitute for some of the concentrate for a tangier lemon taste. After slicing serve with fresh strawberries and blueberries--great for 4th of July! Read More

I've been making this recipe for a few years now and it is requested for all holidays and get-togethers. I love it because it's SO quick and easy. I use a shortbread crust most of the time. Read More

I only gave this four stars because I found it a too sweet. Since I prefer a little more tartness to my lemon pies I made this again using unsweeted whipped cream instead of the sweetened whipped topping. Just whip two cups whipping cream until it makes soft peaks and fold into the sweetened condensed milk lemonade mixture. Read More

YUMMY for lemon pie!! Perfect recipe and sooo easy! My hubby isn't big on lemon pie but man oh man I can eat this whole thing by myself! LOL! Use low fat condensed milk lite whipped topping and a low fat pie crust to make it better for you. Read More
