Lemon Ice Box Pie.
The kids great grandma used to make this all the time and I, a lover of all things lemon still adore it.
It’s simple really. Just get a read- made or make a homemade graham cracker crust.
If you’re interested in how to make your own graham cracker crust, I’ll post a how-to tomorrow.
In a mixing bowl, dump in 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk.
Squeeze 5 or 6 lemons (whichever make one full cup) of lemon juice. Mamoo used frozen lemonade concentrate but for the life of me I couldn’t find that recipe and I always think fresh is best!)
Note that I am using tongs to squeeze my lemons due to Lance breaking my lemon juicer in this debaucle.
Also zest up one of the lemons right over top.
The zest equals roughly about one tablespoon.
And zest just adds SUCH a punch of lemon flavor!
Pour the juice into the sweetened condensed milk.
And mix it all up with a whisk.
Mix up 8 egg yolks with your mixer until they turn a softer yellow and get a little fluffy.
Dump in your condensed milk/lemon mixture.
And mix it all up again for about a minute.
Then pour it into your pie crust.
And bake it for 20 minutes at 350º. Put it in the “icebox” or what southerners used to call their refrigerator in olden days. (Hence the name!)
Now of course at potlucks, there was always Cool Whip…but you can make your own homemade whipped cream. Just for fun toss in a bit of lemon zest into that too! Need a tutorial? Click here!
And there you have a gorgeous, yummy and tart Lemon Icebox Pie! Take it to your next church potluck…or just make it at home.
