Lemon Cheese Pie Recipe

This pie can be made ahead and frozen. SO it's not unusual for me to have one ready to serve in the freezer. I simply remove it from the freezer a few minutes before slicing.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups cold milk, divided
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)


  • 1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add 1/2 cup milk. Sprinkle pudding mix over all. Gradually add remaining milk and lemon peel; beat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour into the crust. Freeze until ready to serve. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Couldn't taste the cream cheese very much. It didn't set well either. But it was still okay. I added fruit to the top to make it more interesting."

"Does this have to be frozen? Could it be just refrigerated?"
