Reviews for Layered Lemon Pie
"In answer to the reviewer that asked about the food coloring - make your own lemon curd. That should work and WAY yummy. I gave not tried this andxwas disappointed on reading thru ingredient list that it’s pre-pkg stuff but I think this is good footprint if you want to do from scratch??"
"I make these every Christmas one lemon, one chocolate, and one pistachio with a ready made graham cracker crust, cream cheese and confection sugar and cool whip followed by large box of pudding make cookies and cream for the kids. Cool whip with chocolate chips or shaved chocolate, coconut on top or anything you prefer. Just a bit different but just as good"
"This had a nice light lemon taste and was so easy to make. I believe this would also be good with a shortbread crust as noted by another reviewer for those of you who do not like graham cracker crust."
"Anyone know of canned lemon without the color Yellow 5 or 6 in it?? We have an intolerance to it."
"OMG. This pie was so simple and amazing everyone loved it."
"This is fantastic - but I added lemon zest and lemon oil . I like a really lemon flavor the pie filling alone isn't much."
"This is an awesome lemon pie recipe. It is so simple."
"Sorry to say I thought I had "ALL" the ingredients when I went to the grocery store but had missed the lemon pie filling. I ended up using the cook and serve lemon pie filling and following the directions to it then adding the rest of the ingredients as listed. Turned out perfect. Took it last night to a card/domino party and everyone enjoyed it! Will try the other as it takes less time to prepare. Also, like someone else, I think i'd like it better with a flour/regular crust. A keeper for sure!! Thanks "
