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!

lemon icebox pie (allrecipes.com)
1 (9-inch) prepared graham cracker crust
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 lemons, juiced
1 teaspoon lemon zest

In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon rind. Mix until smooth. Pour mixture into crust. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and mint leaves if desired.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a HUGE relief that is! Now all you have to do is relax and enjoy what little time you have remaining in the sweetest place on earth :) Time to make a deal on YOUR new house :)

  2. P.S. I notice that you got a search widget on the blog now :) Nice job

  3. Congratulations! Hope the move is a smooth one!!

  4. I saw this recipe when you first posted it, and glad I searched your desserts again. Greg's parents are coming on sunday, and his dad is a big dessert fan, so I am going to make blueberry crisp AND this lemon icebox pie.

  5. This is fabulous and super easy! Only problem is that our company last night only indulged in one piece (I served crisp too), so now I have almost a whole leftover pie, and I happen to love cheesecake! It's going to be a big problem trying not to eat the whole thing myself!
