Granny's Condensed Lemon Pie

Condensed Lemon Pie

Graham Cracker Pie Crust ingredients photo GrahamCrackerPieCrustingredients_zpsd7a4756e.jpg

One of my favorite recipes I learned from Granny.

Ingredients for your crusts:

1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

or follow directions on your Graham cracker crumb container.

This makes a beautiful crust!


Spray your dish with Pam
Melt your butter in pie plate
Combine your sugar and crumbs with butter
Press with the fist of your hand till your crust is spread.

TIP:  If I am making a cold pie I place my crust in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before placing the filling in it.  If I am baking a pie, I place my filling in it and then bake it all together.

Ingredients for your filling:

1 small container or 1/2 a large container of a Frozen Lemonade.

Easter Deviled Eggs

Colorful Deviled Eggs - Happy Easter

Instead of Dyeing boiled eggs this year, I decided to do something different.  My daughter is coming to visit for Easter and she LOVES deviled eggs...PERFECT! Using the idea, I created my own recipe!

Aren't they adorable!

Use food coloring for dyeing the whites.

Boil a dozen eggs.

Tip for peeling eggs:  tap egg softly on hard surface, I use my kitchen sink, cracking it up, then roll the egg in your hands with gentle pressure, peel will slide right off!  Sometimes I add a little baking soda to the boiling water for easy peeling.

Slice Eggs in half-the long way.  I use an egg slicer...
