Add a ray of sunshine to any gathering by serving Sunny Lemon Pie for dessert. Bursting with the tastes of fresh lemon, this creamy no-bake pie is perfect for warm weather days.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (4-serving size) package cook-and-serve lemon pudding and pie filling, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker pie crust
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. While lemon pie filling is still hot, stir in lemon juice and lemon peel. Add sour cream; mix well.
     
  2. Pour mixture into pie crust and chill at least 2 hours, or until set. Dollop with whipped topping and chill until ready to serve.
Notes
  • For an extra special presentation, garnish with sliced lemons.
     
  • Sure, you can use a store-bought pie crust for this, but you can easily make your own homemade graham cracker pie crust, too. You just might want to give it a try!

can instant pudding be used instead?

Unfortunately, for this recipe we do not recommend using instant pudding instead of cooked pudding. We do not think that this will firm up enough to cut.

Was wondering if you could use an 8oz package of cream cheese in place of the sour cream? It would be a different texture and very creamy.

Hi there! Yes, you could use cream cheese instead of sour cream. Just make sure the cream cheese is softened before adding, so that you don't have any lumps! Enjoy :)

I have lemon pie recipes that call for FROZEN lemonade. THIS ONE DOES NOT so WHY menton it?

WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE READING ? I DO NOT SEE ANYWHERE BUTTER IN THE RECIPE.

Use butter if you make your own pie crust

We made it and it set up perfectly. I real hit with my whole family.

I tried this recipe four days ago and the filling still hasn't set....more like a greasy soft pudding consistency.

FANTASTIC I LOVED THE PIE

I would also like to know if you go by the ingredients from the video making the pie filling or do you go by the written recipe..Please clear this up. Thank you.

I have a home made lemon pie recipe from scratch that calls for butter..

what is the purpose of the butter? I have NEVER seen a lemon pie with butter added --unless it was for the pie crust, but NOT in the pudding filling.

I have always used butter in my homemade lemon pies. It gives a smoothness to the filling and definitely tastes better when it is added.

on the recipe it says add butter but in the video for the filling it doesn't mention butter. Should i make it according to the video? thank you
