Lemon Meringue Pies in a Jar

Lemon Meringue Pies in a mason jar.

This was simple to make. Start with the graham cracker “crust”. Combine one package of graham crackers with 1/3 cup sugar and 4 TBS. of softened butter …


Crumble the graham crackers in a Ziploc bag and then add in the sugar and softened butter. Mix it up by hand and press into the bottom of the mason jar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

The lemon pudding

Follow the instructions on the Jell-O box for the pudding and meringue. Just be sure to get the “Cook & Serve” variety. This won’t work with the no-bake instant pudding.

{use the one 3 oz. Jello box to make 6 servings in 1/2 pint mason jars}

Update: To Make the Meringue: Beat together 4 egg whites and 1/2 cup of sugar. Beat until it peaks. Layer onto top of jars and cook at 350 degrees for approximately 10-minutes. Tip: To prevent glass from baking, let jars cool down in oven before removing, after it’s turned off.

Once cooled, refrigerate for a few hours before serving …
