Frozen Lemonade Pie

For the past week I've been in Kentucky visiting my family.  After 6 hours in the car, I finally arrived home to my husband, kids and my dogs.  Boy did I miss them!  I also missed being at home cooking for my family.  I enjoy cooking.  I love searching the internet for quick and easy recipes.  This recipe is so easy and delicious.  With all of the beautiful weather we've been having lately, this pie was a perfect treat for a nice spring day!

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust:

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
7 tablespoons butter, melted

Pie Filling:
1 8-ounce packet of cream cheese, softened
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 container (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping,
lemon slices, for garnish

Directions
For the crust: In medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and the melted butter until combined and resembles a wet sand mixture.  Pour into a pie plate and press the mixture firmly along the bottom and sides.  Set aside

For the filling: Using a handheld electric mixer, in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together on medium high speed until the mixture is smooth.  Add the lemonade concentrate and lemon juice and continue beating.  Pour the filling into the pie crust. Place in the freezer overnight.  Once pie is frozen, remove from freezer and top with whipped topping and lemon slices.  Slice and enjoy!

Hello Brandi~

That looks SO delicious! And what could be a more perfect dessert for spring? I am bookmarking this one, we have some lemon lovers here in my home! :)

I am glad to hear your time with your family was good, and that you had a safe trip home. :) Six hours is sure a long time in the car! I bet you were tired when you got home!

I hope you have a good night, and a beautiful weekend!

Blessings,

Welcome home!
Yum, yum! That is one of my favorite pie recipes. You stepped it up a notch by making your own crust. I cheat with the ready made ones.
Have a great week!
