lemon icebox pie
Our family has reason to celebrate- we accepted an offer on our house last night! What a tremendous blessing for us. We didn't have FHE last night because we were intent to seal the deal so we'll make up for it tonight and focus on our blessings and our gratitude for the Lord, that He has answered our prayers in a very obvious way. I am feel happy for the family moving into our home and hope they will love our home and our neighbors as we have. I'm certain they will.
This pie is delicious. The lemon is very subtle and it tastes just like cheesecake. Mmmm!
