In keeping with our Lemon theme, we’re excited to share this 4 ingredient, quick and citrusy recipe! My kinda pie! Sure to amp up any Summer Soiree, as the temperatures rise. Our friend Ginny brought over this to-die-for Ice Box Pie as a dessert for our outdoor dinner. I couldn’t believe how delicious and totally unique it was! We ended up saving several leftover slices for ourselves, even for Chris who’s never been much of a “sweets” guy. This light and tangy dessert should definitely be making an entrance at your next summer get together! Thank you SO much, Ginny for this tried and true Pinterest favorite!
LEMON ICE BOX PIE
2 – 8oz cream cheese softened
1 – Can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 Cup lemon juice + a little lemon zest
1 – Store bought graham cracker pie crust (See our “go-to” Marie Callendar’s crust solution below!)
**Optional 3P Tip: Dress up each slice on a pretty plate with a slice of lemon**
Beat the cream cheese until no lumps are visible. Add the condensed milk, lemon juice and zest. Mix until smooth. Pour into the pie crust and refrigerate for 2 hrs. or overnight for a good chill.
