Creamy Lemonade Pie

This recipe comes from the June 2012 issue of www.dashrecipes.com and oh my, is it ever EASY, but most of all,  DELICIOUS!!  If you need a quick dessert to bring to someone, this is outstanding.  I'll be making this again.  Next time, I'll try it with limeade and fresh lime juice.  Please make it this Summer!

1/2 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade, thawed
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Juice of 1 lemon
1 (9-inch) pie crust, baked (I made a graham cracker crust; recipe follows)

Combine lemonade, sweetened condensed milk, whipped topping and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl.  Beat for 1 minute with an electric mixer set on medium.

Spoon into crust.  Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Graham Cracker Crust:
1 sleeve of graham crackers (11 double)
2 T. sugar
5 T. butter, melted

Pie and my favorite iced tea...perfect in this heat!!
Crush the graham crackers in a food processor or by hand.  Add the sugar and melted butter and mix well.  Pour the crumbs into a 9" pie plate and press well into the bottom and up the sides. 
Bake the crust in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.  Cool the crust completely before filling.

  39. That sounds just like the pieces of pie mom shared w/us a week or so ago. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it. I think mom's had almond slivers sprinkled on top. It was a tad too lemon-something for me. I'm more a chocolate person unfortunately.

    I love your strawberry plate! And the setting!

    Happy Pink Saturday!
