I’ve had this one-bowl lemon pie recipe for years. It’s my twist on chocolate French silk pie, and it's uber easy to do with refrigerated pie pastry. —Glenna Tooman, Boise, Idaho

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Unroll pastry sheet into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  2. In a bowl, mix sugar and flour until blended. Whisk in eggs, corn syrup, lemon peel, lemon juice and melted butter until blended. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate.
  3. Bake on a lower oven rack until filling is golden brown and thickened, 40-45 minutes; cover edge loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Remove foil; cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or until cold.
  4. For whipped cream, in a bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Serve pie with whipped cream. Yield: 8 servings.

"Delicious and so easy to make! Tastes just like a lemon meringue pie without all the work. If you don't feel like preparing the sweetened whipped cream, then just serve with cool whip on the side. Don't put the cool whip on the pie while chilling. I did the first time and it just broke down. Maybe because of the lemon juice!? Please make this pie the night before you want to serve it. The true lemon meringue pie flavor is worth the wait!!"
