Gluten Free Easy Lemon Meringue Pie

I have always loved lemon meringue pie. Just can’t get enough of it. What I have not always loved is the time and effort it takes to make a great one. This recipe for Gluten Free Easy Lemon Meringue Pie is so much faster and takes so much less time. It’s so easy, it is almost too easy!

For one thing, I forwent the traditional pie crust and went with a gluten free graham cracker crust instead – that right there is a huge time saver and couldn’t be simpler. I simply used a box of Kinnikinnick gluten free graham style crumbs, a bit of sugar, and some melted butter, pressed it into a pie plate and just like that – crust done! I didn’t even bake it first.

From there I took just 4 more ingredients and made one delicious pie.

Who says you can’t have your pie and eat it, too?
