Summery Lemon Pie : Lemon Icebox PieThursday, July 13, 2006
When I was a Freshman in college, my boyfriend and I would visit his dad and new step-mother, and one day she served us the yummiest lemon icebox pie ever. It was cold and lemony and just the thing right in the middle of summer. I asked her for the recipe, and it was so simple - just four ingredients and no baking (no eggs)! Especially during the summer (it was 95* yesterday), who wants to be an ingredient snob with a pie that takes all of five minutes to make!? I make this every summer and everybody always loves it:
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 can condensed milk
1 can frozen lemonade
1 graham cracker crust
...it's so easy - just put the Cool Whip in the KitchenAid bowl, then the condensed milk, then start adding the lemonade until it's just the right amount of lemony flavor (I usually use the entire container).
Pour it into the pie crust and freeze overnight (keep it stored in the freezer - it's not hard to cut through).
