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) ♥
I’m going to try this, looks much easier than other lemonade pie recipes I’ve seen. Thanks for posting it Paula.
Hope you like it! We sure do! ♥
I’m going to make this tomorrow so I’ll have it for the 4th. Thank you!
yay! enjoy and HappY 4th!
You too! I’ll let you know how we like it.
That “looks” [the photos are in my head!] delish! And not too complicated – will definitely give it a try! Tell your Aunt Betty thanks!
😉 Aunt Betty will be tickled!
I love that your sharing recipes now! AND, I love lemonade pie. Thanks!
♥ I eat eaglebrand milk straight outta the can with a spoon….but don’t tell anyone…shhhhhh ♥
Yum! Sounds like a good add to the 4th of July cookout!
Will you help us Save our History?
I hope you like it! HaPPy 4th! paula
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
I could only ship a portion of this to you, friend. Maybe when you are back in the USA for a visit you can have this? 😉 And you can still celebrate your home land in your heart, girl! ♥ (how do you live without cool whip? lol)
Yes, I can make it next time I’m over and I always fire up the BBQ when my husband gets home from work on the forth of July. And America is always in my heart, no matter where I am:) Happy fourth to you and yours Paula!
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!
Well it sure is easy and yummy! Hope you like! 😉
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! 😉
