No Bake Lemon Jar Pie

We love the lemon flavor and we especially love Lemon Pie. In the summer it is really nice to have a nice cool dessert to serve that can transport to the patio or picnic area. These No Bake Lemon Jar Pies are just great to transport outdoors and everyone has their own little pie.

I get excited to receive my assignment for The Secret Recipe Club every month. It is just so much fun to go to someones blog and look through all their recipes and decide what to present in the SRC reveal. I was thrilled when I saw my assignment this month, Deb at Cooking On The Front Burners. Deb has been blogging since 2011, but has been cooking for over 20 years. She comes from a long line of Italian cooks including her Italian immigrant grandparents who passed through Ellis Island in the early 1930's. Deb has a great blog that I visit often so I knew it would be so much fun to cook from her blog, the only problem was making a decision. I did finally decide to make the No Bake Lemon Pie and another one of my favorites is her recent Pina Colada Dessert Cups. Be sure and stop by Deb's blog, you will be glad you did.
