    Looks incredible!!! What a perfect recipe now that spring has finally sprung.

    • Hi Wendy, They are that, maybe a bit to much… LOL. I am making these again for Mother’s day and to celebrate spring.

    • wendy mccance

      I have a get together coming up. I’m thinking of using that recipe. It would be such a cool presentation too.

  • The jars are great for presentation. You can do a similar move with muffin tins. Muffin sized cheesecake is great for parties. I wonder how the merengue would handle this?

    • Hi John. I have done that too with my mini creme brûlée pies post and they are just so cute. I love portion control on these as well.

  • Janelle

    How fun! My favourite pie, also 🙂

    • They really were fun to make Janelle. I know you will love them. 🙂

  • Love this whole pie in a jar concept! Fun way to present desert or a snack. 🙂

    • I do too, Cheryl. I have more ideas like this in the works. so stay tuned. 🙂

  • Merle

    Another great recipe Susan. I love lemon meringue pie but all these delicious recipes you are giving me are not good for my diet LOL – only because I eat more of it than I should !!

    • Hi Merle, You are so welcome (calories and al… hee, hee). I often give these away to avoid my eating them all. My neighbor and local friends love that and say the very same thing. 🙂

  • What a wonderful idea Susan. Am sure it’s delicious too!!

    • Hi Catarina, Thanks, it was fun to do. I was delicious, if I don’t say so myself. 🙂

  • I love lemon meringue too but I didn’t know you could put those glass jars in the oven. Dah! You can tell I’m not much of a cook. This is a really neat recipe Susan and I just may have to give this one a try. Thank you so much.


    • Hi Adrienne, It’s all about the size, temperature and time it takes to cook them. That is why it works so well. I can’t wait to hear how you liked it when you make them. 🙂

  • Love the jar concept. I am going to try it with lime as my husband likes Key Lime Pie Thank you for the recipe.

    • Hi Arleen, It will be awesome with lime. Have fun with this and let me know how it turns out when you do. 🙂

  • Wendy Merron

    Susan- Putting on my psychic hat for a moment.. I’m sensing a cookbook in your future…
    Jars aren’t just for Jam!!

    • Hi Wendy, I think you might be psychic… yes indeed, there is a cookbook in my future. Truth be told, I started sharing recipes as way to document our favorites with the intention of creating a family cookbook. I have been so surprised at how well these recipes have been received. 🙂

  • Margaret Duarte

    I’m about ready to invite myself over to your house for lemon meringue pie and coffee. Yum! Who gets to do the taste tests? Sounds like fun. Thanks for the great idea, Susan.

    • Hi Margarita, Oh, what a great idea. I will have to give you a call and you could be one of my taste testers. 😀

  • I like the idea of serving in jars, like you also did with the macaroni, but I’m not a lemon fan. I will eat it, but I never crave it. Now put chocolate mousse in a jar and I’ll gobble it right up!

    • Hi Jeri, I get that, not everyone does. Just for you I am working on a chocolate something in a jar …SH!!! it’s a surprise. 🙂

  • Dee Johnson

    Oh yay! This is an awesome idea. I love lemon meringue pie and I will definitely have to try this recipe.

    • Hi Dee and welcome. I love how fun these are and how good they are. You will have a blast and don’t forget to make a double batch because they will be gone in a flash… LOL. 🙂

  • I wouldn’t have thought of making them in a jar and your recipe looks delicious Susan. Yet another of your recipes I have bookmarked 🙂

    • Hi Susan, This is one of those recipes you’ll refer to many times. It is that easy and that good. Enjoy, my friend.

  • Those look fabulous Susan =) i want to try a pie in a jar recipe…

    • Hi Jamie, It just the funniest thing to do. Have fun with this and come back tell me about it. 🙂

  • Elizabeth Scott

    OMG I love Lemon Meringue Pie but haven’t made it in some time. I think this is perfect!!! Can’t wait to make this.

    • Hi Elizabeth, You will love this and also love how easy it is to make. You must tell me how it turns out when you do. 🙂

  • Michael Belk

    Susan, that looks awesome. If I ever meet you, do not be surprised if I ask you to cook. :). I would gain a lot of weight over to your house.

    You must love to cook because the average person does not try out dishes for the fun of it.

    • Hi Michael, It is that. I will admit ti do enjoy the art of cooking. To me it just so fun to see a few things come together in this amazingly delicious eats. I actually don’t eat all that I make. My friends and neighbors benefit and are my taste testers. They groan about how fat I’m making them but they smile really big when I bring something new for them to taste… LOL. 🙂

  • Michael Belk

    Susan I have paid big money for those desserts.

    • Then you must make them, Michael. They only cost a dollar or two to make the whole batch… LOL. 🙂

      • Michael Belk

        Susan I wish I was one of your neighbors. I would not complain about desserts.

  • Carissa

    Love the idea! This is so cute 🙂

    • Hi Carissa and welcome. It is really fun to make too. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Hi Susan

    What a lovely idea to do the individual pies. That would keep one from taking a bit bigger piece of pie than what they would have otherwise. I have a bunch of lemons hanging on the tree just waiting for when I can decide if I want the extra calories! Shall have to make a decision on to make a pie or not. But I am getting hungry for a lemon pie.


    • Hi Mary, Thank you. :-). It would indeed do that. It is a great way to dictate portion control. I would love to have a lemon tree in my yard. I do hope you give this a try with your fresh lemons very soon. 🙂

  • Jacs Henderson

    Another winner Susan! These look absolutely scrummy – brilliant idea for a dinner party, they are much cuter and somehow look more delicious than a slice of pie 🙂

    • Hi Jacs, Thanks my friend. They are so cute AND so delicious, many will ask for seconds. 🙂

  • Your kitchen must smell amazing Susan. (I wish I lived closer so I could come over for a cup of coffee and a taste of something yummy.) I haven’t thought of lemon meringue pies in years. My grandmother used to make them.

    • Hi Sherryl, It does at times, however every now and then I have a disaster and boy does it smell, not in a good way… LOL. I would love that too, coffee on the patio with a newly baked item would be heaven. 🙂

  • Susan — love lemon meringue pies but these days unless you make them yourself the only place I ever see them is in diners. That’s strange when I think about it. I wonder why better restaurants don’t serve them.

    • Hi Jeannette, I do too. You’re right! The way I see is it’s only a matter of time until someone makes it the new rage. 🙂

  • Max Christian Hansen

    Susan, you do lovely food as well as lovely vector art. You should connect with me on LinkedIn. Then I’ll give you my real email address. Then I’ll send you a dessert recipe I made up on the fly last summer when I had guests over. I’d love to have you feature it here. It’s for summer, though–rhubarb and fresh blueberries.

    • Hi Max, I just connected and sent you a message Yea!!! I do so love rhubarb and blueberries. Bring it on my friend. 🙂

  • Ida

    I make a lot of pies in jars, but I never thought of making a lemon meringue one. Great idea.

    • Hi Ida, Food in a jar is just so cool for all kid and sizes of kids, don’t you think? Have fun with this and let me know how it goes. 🙂

  • Caryn/The Mid Life Guru

    My second favorite pie (after custard). I am definitely going to make these!!!

  • Mark Brody

    Susan – My mouth is absolutely watering! I love Lemon Meringue, and this looks very interesting!! Love the concept!
    Thank you for sharing!!

    • Hi Mark, Thanks and you’re so welcome. It is super easy too so go for it. 🙂

  • Devon

    Your jar recipes are so intriguing! I’ll start with mac ‘n’ cheese in a jar and finish with this yummy treat!!

    • Hi Devon, Thanks so much my friend, I think you’ll love them both. Enjoy. 🙂

  • hardawan bayu

    I actually have never tried this kind of pie before but it looks pretty. I’m an apple pie and ice cream person. Some pies scare me a little lol

    • This is a super easy recipe, easier then apple pie (which I love). Give them a try, your family will thank you for it. 🙂

  • Cassandra Schmigotzki

    Sounds both rich and delicious!

    • Hi Cassandra and welcome. It is both and oh so simple to make. Let me know what you think when you give this a try. 🙂

    I have some chocolate graham crackers that I know I won’t finish alone; perhaps I could adjust this recipe to top them? Probably will need to crumble the graham crackers to fit the mason jars, but it’ll be worth it to use up those grahams AND to have yummy lemon meringue filling. Very tempting ….

    • Hi Dana, I have used a graham cracker crust with this and it worked very well. I would crumb the graham crackers and add a a bit of butter and press until firm in the bottom. Have fun with it, and let me know how it turned out for you. 🙂

  • Paul Graham

    I love lemon meringue and this seems a great recipe. Fresh lemon or lime juice is always best as the packaged varieties usually contain preservatives and other chemicals. No need to reply, I need to eat now !

    • I love this recipe for it ease and overall flavor and so will you Paul. Give a whirl. 🙂

  • Meredith Wouters

    I just bought some of these jars, just because they were cute, and I was wondering what I’d do with them! Thanks for answering that question for me. 🙂

    • Hi Meredith, These little jars have so many uses and possibilities. This but one recipe that I’ve used them for such ad Chocolate Pie, Pumpkin Pie and Mac and Cheese in a jar. You might want to check these out if this something you like. 🙂

  • Mission0ps

    They look kinda yummy to me Susan.

    Bit of a foodie fanatic myself as it happens!

    • It is one of our favorites for a reason, Mission. I do hope you give it a whirl. 🙂 Thanks for checking it out. 🙂
