I found this little oddity of a recipe in my Mom’s recipe box, credited to my Aunt Mary. I think I have some very vague memories of this Frozen Lemonade Pie when we used to share a cabin at “The Lakes.”
Swimming and sunburns and trampolines & mini-golf. And this pie. No air conditioning back then, but this would cool us off.
I make a couple killer lemon desserts, like this special occasion extravaganza, Lemon Curd Mousse Cake, but yesterday with no-shame (well, maybe a little shame) I plunked a grocery store crust in a pan, stirred the filling together and froze this pie.
Five minutes, folks. That’s right, five minus plus thaw and freeze time. I just had to see if this tasted as good as I remembered.
Verdict: It’s darn good. Really. Surprisingly good. I am still having a hard time about the Cool Whip in this. What can I say?
Happy Memorial Day, folks and be safe. And remember a loved one that served. 🙂 And eat your pie fast, before it melts. 🙂 Don’t stand around like an idiot taking pictures of it, lol!
