Easy Lemon Pie

In a rush to find something to bring for your next holiday gathering? I hate cliches but when it comes to "easy as pie" it doesn't get any easier than this. Another one of my grandma's recipes this lemon pie is easy and delicious- a win-win in my book. With just a few simple ingredient and a pre-baked pie crust you can have this pie ready to go in under 30 minutes (my personal best is 21). This pie has the right combination of sweet and tart. When life gives you lemons.... Make lemon pie!

The filling should look like this after boil and cooling
