Let's have tea and Ice Box Lemon Pie out in the garden today, shall we? I'd show you my waterfall, but it's not working right now, so I'll show you my fairy garden instead!
This darling bee teacup and saucer was a gift from my daughter at Christmas. Isn't it bee-u-tiful?
Isn't the saucer cute, too?
This napkin coordinates so pretty with my setting, doesn't it?
Come along to see my fairy garden that I made several years ago, that's in my galvanized tub. I have four fairies for my four granddaughters and three gnomes for my three grandsons. With our recent hailstorm, two of my fairies got broken wings. Yes, the hail was that big!
I have a toadstool with a tea set, of course! Playing in the fairy garden just brings out the little girl in me!
Can you see the tire swing over my little river?
This sweet little birdhouse is getting all rusty, because it's been out for several years.
Here's the garden gate with a chandelier hanging in the archway.
Now, after all that playing in the fairy garden let's have some pie! This Lemon Ice Box Pie came from my friend, Jemma, @ At Home With Jemma. It's very much like my Cherry Cheesecake (unbaked) recipe, found here. For the crust on this pie, I used Biscoff cookies, ground up, because I had them in my pantry and had forgotten what recipe I had wanted them for!! Does that ever happen to you? I think you'll like this recipe, as it's creamy, cool and lemony, but not too. Here's the recipe:
1- 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1- 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 T. lemon zest
1 t. vanilla
1 prepared graham cracker crust, store bought or homemade, found here (I used Biscoff cookies, but you could also use shortbread cookies)
whipped cream for garnish
Combine cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla. Mix on medium speed with a mixer until smooth. Pour into prepared crust. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with whipped cream.
Here's a sample of hail that my son is holding that hammered down! There were even larger ones than this.
