Expert Tips

You can use thawed frozen whipped topping in place of the whipping cream. Fold lemon mixture into 3 cups whipped topping, and serve additional whipped topping with the pie.

You can change up the flavor to make a creamy lime pie if you use fresh limes instead of lemons.

Top the pie with dollops of whipped cream and fresh raspberries, strawberries or blueberries.
