Course Desserts | Cakes | Pies


  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 2/3 c Sugar
  • 1 can Lemon Pie Filling I like to use the egg yolks and make a lg. pkg. filling
  • 1 pkg Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
  • 1 c Milk
  • 1/2 pt Heavy Cream
  • Chopped Nuts for Topping


  • Beat egg whites until foamy and gradually add the sugar, beating until stiff. Spread into a 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake in a slow oven (275-degrees) for 1 hour. Turn off oven and let meringue stay in oven overnight. Spread lemon filling on top of meringue. Make vanilla pudding, using only 1 cup milk. Let stand while you whip the cream. Fold the cream into pudding. Spread on top of lemon layer. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and refrigerate.
