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?


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.


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.

I also add butter to lemon pie filling that is cooked. Thinner "skin" on it and much better texture.

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
