Marshmallow Crispy Lemon Pie

                                                      Marshmallow Crispy Lemon Pie

I recently made this for a potluck at work and it caught everyone by surprise. I used simple ingredients, an easy as - well - pie, recipe and it came out delicious. So good I had to make one for us, too! I did make cooked lemon pudding as opposed to the instant variety. I prefer the texture and it holds much better. A few folks commented on the "homemade lemon curd." Who was I to disillusion them?

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 c (half of the 3 oz pkg) dry JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin
  • 4 c mini marshmallows
  • 3 c RICE KRISPIES or krispy rice cereal
  • 1 pkg (3.4 oz) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Pudding and Pie Filling
  • 1 1/2 c cold milk (we used low fat)
  • Strawberries for garnish, if desired
  1. Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on high for 30 seconds or until melted. Add dry gelatin mix and marshmallows, tossing to coat. Microwave 1 minute, stir, and microwave an additional 15 -30 seconds, checking often to see if completely melted and mixture is blended. Add cereal and mix with wooden spoon sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare Lemon Pudding mix as directed on  package. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Press cereal mixture onto bottom and side of a 9" pie pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. It will be a thick layer.
  4. Pour pudding mix on top.
  5. Cover with a pie lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours, until completely set.
  6. Remove from fridge and cut using a hot knife. Garnish with strawberries before serving, if desired.
