Icebox Lemonade Pie

I don't know about where you live, but it sure has been hot here in our little corner of the world.  We are also trying to adjust to the humidity here.  In the mountains of East Tennessee, we didn't suffer from as much humidity.  We had wind, but not humidity.  Just for the record, I'll take a little humidity over the wind any day!  I find that when it is hot outside my family enjoys lighter desserts.  This dessert is one our favorites.  It is a refreshing cold pie that is great served next to a glass of sweet iced tea.  It is also easy and can be made several days in advance.  What's not to love?  Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup lemonade concentrate
1 (8 oz) carton Cool Whip, thawed
1 graham cracker crust

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Gradually beat in milk until blended.  Beat in lemonade concentrate.  Fold in whipped topping.  Pour into crust.  Cover and refrigerate until set. 

grace and peace,

Carmen,
How is your son doing in boot camp? I have thought a lot about you as well as him. We are enjoying the new house. We are still unpacking boxes if you can believe that. Originally I thought we didn't have very much stuff. I have now changed my mind. Hope you have a great day!

Cheryl,
I am glad you are enjoying the recipes. I love to cook and I love to share when I find a good recipe. I hope it cools off for you and me both soon!

grace and peace,
