Who remembers the Tastykake Pies? I know, I know, I’m dating myself. They used to (and probably still do) make fruit pies. Apple, cherry…and Lemon! I loved those lemon pies. I’d take one of those lemon pies over a slice of chocolate cake any day of the week.
Shopping before Christmas, I spotted Comstock Lemon Pie filling. I picked up a can and put it in the pantry where, honestly, I forgot about it. Until the other day. I had already taken a pie crust out of the freezer for another project. And I remembered my friend Kelli had written a post on fried pies. I just couldn’t stand it. I had to make lemon pies, and fast. It almost killed me waiting for the pie crust to thaw.
These pies were so good. Better than the ones I remember from Tastykake. And it only took minutes to make once the pie crust was thawed. The crust was so light and flaky and the filling…oh the filling!
