  • 1 graham cracker pie crust (premade ready to use)
  • 2 cups half and half (half milk/half heavy cream)
  • 2 packages instant LEMON pudding (3.4 oz each)
  • 1/2 lemon (juice of half a lemon)
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip (1 package)


  • Take pie crust out of package and keep it inside the foil. Do not turn it upside down or attempt to take it out - it will get crumbled and destroyed.

First Layer

  • Add half and half and juice of 1/2 lemon to the medium bowl and then add both packages of instant lemon pudding. Using a whisk, mix for 2 minutes, until the instant pudding mix is dissolved. The pudding consistency will not be firm at this point. Allow the pudding to sit in the fridge or freezer for 5 more minutes so that it thickens.
  • Take approximately 1/2 of the lemon pudding mixture and spread it as a first layer using a spatula to even it out.

Second Layer

  • Add 1/2 of the Cool Whip package to the remaining 1/2 of the lemon pudding in the bowl and mix together with a spatula to form a uniform mixture.
    Add this lemon pudding/Cool Whip mixture on top of the first layer. Use a spatula to even it out.

Third Layer

  • Add remaining Cool Whip on top to form a third layer. Spread the Cool Whip on top of the second layer with a spatula. I used circular motions with my spatula to create the spikes.
