I love to bake... cooking, not so much – but baking is definitely my jam!
However, turning on the oven to do a little baking in the 100 degree Arizona summer, honestly, just seems a bit masochistic. So, that’s the precise reason why this lemon ice box pie is so amazing... no bake! And let’s be real, anything with the name “ice box” is going to be a guaranteed hit for a summer dessert.
Not to mention the lemon is a perfect combination of sweet and tart - so fresh and so clean! ♫♫
What you need:
2 - 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 - 14oz can of condensed milk
2 freshly juiced lemons
Zest from 1 lemon
1 graham cracker crust
Begin by whipping the cream cheese in a mixing bowl... unless you have some serious biceps, I recommend using a mixer! Once the cream cheese is fluffy (5 minutes or so), add in the condensed milk, lemon juice, and half of the lemon zest. Mix until combined and smooth.
Pour the lemon mixture into your graham cracker crust and top with your remaining lemon zest.
Pop your pie into the refrigerator and let chill for 2 hours.
Before serving, garnish with slices of lemon, raspberries, and mint.
Gotta love the pretty summer colors!
And get ready to indulge - this pie is quite tasty (and was a cinch to make)!!
I'm not going to lie, this is my first time making a "no bake" recipe, and I am quite impressed.
I could totally get into this!
