No-Bake Lemon Pie

Hi, everyone! It’s Jennifer back from Deliciously Sprinkled. I’m so excited to share this No-Bake Lemon Pie with you today because it’s one of my all-time favorite lemon desserts!

My family always requests that I make this No-bake Lemon Pie and my No-Bake Strawberry and Cream Pie for our families Easter brunch.

Not only is this No-Bake Lemon Pie so delicious and refreshing, it’s also one of the easiest pies to make because you don’t even have to turn on your oven. The hardest thing about making this pie is waiting for it to set in the refrigerator before being able to eat it.

Enjoy & Happy Spring!

No-Bake Lemon Pie✓ BAKING TIP: When making the gelatine mixture: add the hot water to the gelatin and let it dissolve, then add your cold water and ice cubes, let it sit for about 5 MINUTES to let it thicken slightly before you add the cool whip otherwise it won’t set up and it will be runny/soupy.
