National Pie Day

Now I know why everyone gives up on losing weight as a New Year's Resolution by the end of January. Who can resist National Pie Day? I most certainly cannot. To stay on track with my workouts and new eating habits, the hubby and I may need to share one piece of pie. :-)

One of my all time favorite pies is lemon pie. It is the easiest and most delicious dessert to make.

Deep Dish Pie Crust
Jello Lemon Pie Filling (cook and serve)
Cool Whip

Follow the cooking directions for the Pie Crust. It needs to be completely cooked to a golden brown. Let cool.

Follow the cooking instructions on the Jello Lemon Pie Filling. Immediately pour the filling into the cooled pie shell. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Place the pie in the refrigerator and let set. This usually takes a couple of hours.

Once the pie filling is firm place the entire container of Cool Whip on top of the lemon filling. Cut and serve.

Okay, so it is semi-homemade, and that's okay.  Tell us what your favorite pie recipes are and share them below.

Heating up the oven,
