Aunt Betty’s Lemonade Pie

I made a lemonade pie last week for the first time in a VERY long time.  My Aunt Betty used to bring this to family gatherings and so I always think of her when I am buying the ingredients.  It is very refreshing for summertime, perfect for July 4th !  Since I just made this, you would think I’d have pictures to share?  Nope.  I forgot.  The recipe makes enough for two pies, so I shared one with my neighbor and about three bites into MY piece of pie, I said to my hubby, “I frorgot tu tae hicturs”. Translation?  for being so rude and talking with mouth full   I forgot to take pictures!  We looked at each other, and continued eating our pie.

So here is the recipe….no pie pictures though! 😉

Aunt Betty’s Lemonade Pie

2 graham cracker crusts

1 can sweetened condensed milk (there is fat-free available)

1 large container cool whip (I us “light”)

1/2 can frozen lemonade OR limeade

Mix the sweetened condensed milk with the lemonade until smooth.  Fold in cool whip and mix well.  Pour into crusts.  Set bowl aside.  Refrigerate OR freeze pies.  I think this pie is better after it has set over night, personally.  Top with your favorite fruit or eat without.  We had fresh blueberries and strawberries and they were a delicious mix.  Okay…now go lick that bowl!                                                  Meet Aunt Betty ~  Isn’t she pretty?               And more of our unruly gang ~ we sure have fun when we get to hang out!

Happy Monday, people!  Be nice to each other.  (It can be a little tougher to do that on Mondays) ♥

  6. It looks like you have a nice friendly family Paula.
    Unfortunately, I can’t make this recipe 😦
    No graham cracker crusts
    No cool whip
    No lemonade… in Norway
    But thats okay, there is no 4th of July here either. Its just a plain old working day…sigh

    Yum! Nothing like lemon pie on a southern summer day. This recipe is very similar to mine, but I just use lemon flavoring-think I will try it your way-sounds great!

  8. I want to make a remark about what a lineup of pretty women you have in your family. I’m betting they are all good cooks. I know envy is a ‘sin’, but I sure envy you for having your sweet family close enough for get-togethers. I’ll keep this lemon pie recipe for when the green lemons turn yellow on our tree out in the yard. Thanks!

    • You are too sweet, Delores ♥ We don’t get together very often….but when we DO…it’s lots of fun, laughter and good eatin’! (and we are hoping to do this in the very near future! yay!)This Oklahoma gal still marvels at anyone having a lemon tree! I love lemons and cannot imagine plucking one from a tree rather than the bin at the grocery store! 😉
