Thanks to Tulips4You, I made lemonade pie today for a dinner party I'm throwing tomorrow.

Deleted

Because the Cool Whip (say it like Stewie on Family Guy; it's more fun that way) only came in 8 oz or 16 oz tubs, and the recipe called for 12 oz, I bought the bigger one. I still used the whole 16 oz, figuring that it would cut a bit of the tartness of the lemonade concentrate.

I filled the pie crust and had some left over, emphasis on the *had*. I ate the leftovers right off the spatula. I can only imagine that in a graham cracker pie crust, frozen until tomorrow night, it will be even better.

I highly recommend it!

I love this stuff. My mom has made it since I was a kid. There was a thread about it in here somewhere, but the OP called it something different. My family has always called it lemonade pie, too. Try it with pink leomande...mmmmmmm. I can eat the whole thing by myself.

Pink lemonade, you say???? I just fainted! (But I'll revive myself and make it when my in-laws are here!)

I don't doubt that this can be eaten by one person in one sitting. I just wanted to drop my face in the pie, like a pig at the trough. I imagine it will be even better when it's been frozen overnight. I just hope that I can hold off until my guests arrive. Otherwise, I'll just throw a gallon of ice cream on the table and tell them there was an earlier "dessert incident" and leave it at that.

I laughed at the "pig in the trough" simply because I felt the same wayI have made two of these already and made a complete hog of myself. You can always say someone broke in and stole the pie or the "dog ate it".

MMMMM....looks very similar to a recipe we've used in my family for years....

1 Box of Vanilla Wafers - crushed into fine crumbs
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Juice of 3 lemons (good sized, not tiny ones)
1/2 pt freshly whipped cream

In a 9X9 pan (buttered) press about 1/2 -3/4 of the cookie crumbs to form a crust.
Mix together the lemon juice and evaporated milk together and pour into the pan.
Gently cover with dollops of the whipped cream and smooth over forming it's own layer
Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs over the top.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Yum...

Yes, the pink is soooo good. I feel your pain on trying to hold off. I purposely do not make this pie unless I know I won't be alone with it's ready - cause I really will eat the whole thing.
