These Mini Meyer Lemon Cream Pies combine the smoothness of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and the tart, tangy and sometimes sweet flavor of Meyer lemons.

The filling can be made a day or two ahead and the crusts bake up in less than 10 minutes… talk about easy!
Mini Meyer Lemon Cream Pies
- 1-1/4 c graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tbsp Splenda for Baking
- 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 3 (8 oz) containers COOL WHIP Free whipped topping
- Grated zest and juice of 4 Meyer lemons
- 1/2 c Confectioners' sugar
For the crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, Splenda for Baking and the melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of four tartlet molds or 4-ounce ramekins. Set aside any remaining crumbs to be used before serving. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
For the filling:
In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, combine 2-1/2 containers of COOL WHIP Free, lemon zest & juice and the Confectioners' sugar until smooth. Spoon the mixture into the crusts and refrigerate for at least an hour. Using the extra 1/2 container, top each mini pie with a dollop of COOL WHIP Free and any extra graham cracker crumbs before serving.2.0
