Uncle Bob, who turned 90 a short while back, loves Molly the Baker’s lemon pie.  She gave me her recipe, and despite not being much of a baker, I used Immaculate Ready-to-Bake Pie crust, and it came out amazing.  I didn’t pipe whipped cream on top and garnish it like the picture I borrowed from Taste of Home, but nobody complained!

Bake one Immaculate Ready-to-Bake pie crust at 400 F for 5-7 minutes until golden brown.


Lemon zest 1/2 oz

Sugar 13 1/4 oz

Eggs 5
Butter 2 1/4 oz
Lemon juice 3/4 C +1 Tbsp
Mix the eggs and sugar together.
Melt the butter. Should be very hot and clear.
Mix the butter into the eggs and sugar.
Process the lemon zest with a little bit of lemon juice and then add to mixture.
Add the rest of the juice.
Pour mixture into parbaked crust bake at 300 F until it jiggles slightly (It took about an hour)
It would be good topped with whipped cream, as it is tart (but so yummy).
We like So Delicious CocoWhip.




Molly's Tin Roof Fudge Tart (adapted from Pillsbury)

1 pie crust

2 oz semi sweet mini chips
1 Tbsp. butter

1 package caramel bits (or 20 caramels, unwrapped)
1/3 C. whipping cream
1 1/2 C. dry roasted unsalted peanuts
8 oz. semi sweet mini chips
2 Tbsp. butter
1 C. whipping cream
2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven 450.
Prick pie crust and bake 10 to 12 minutes.


Melt 2 oz. chocolate and ! Tbsp. butter.


Pour into prepared pie crust.


Melt caramel bits in whipping cream in medium saucepan.


Stir in peanuts.


Pour peanut mixture over hardened chocolate layer in pie shell.


Melt 8 oz. chocolate and allow to cool.


Meanwhile, whip 1 cup whipping cream and vanilla.


Beat until soft peaks form.


Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into cooled melted chocolate.


Fold remaining whipped cream into chocolate whipped cream mixture.


Layer over caramel in pie crust.


Molly forgot to retain some caramels to garnish the top of the pie.

Nobody will care. It will be amazing and will disappear!


You could use milk, white, dark chocolate, or other chips such as butterscotch.

You could use cool whip instead of whipping your own cream for the mousse or use chocolate mousse mix.

You could use other nuts!

My daughter Molly is the baker in the family.
