1 box (4-serving size) lemon instant pudding and pie filling mix
½ cup lemon pie filling (from 15.75-oz can)

Small, round multi-colored candies, if desired

Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
