Favorite Lemon Icebox Pie

Gail Welch Recipe

By Gail Welch sugarshack

We used to eat at a restaurant that served lemon icebox pie. I really think it was the Edward's brand. I have tried to find a recipe to recreate it. This is as close to it as I can remember. I've tweaked three recipes to come up with this recipe.

Directions Step-By-Step

MAKE THE COOKIE CRUST (OR USE READY MADE VANILLA WAFER OR GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST): Place wafers in a gallon sized ziplock bag and use rolling pin to crush cookies into crumbs. Add melted butter and knead. Press into bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Chill 30 mins. - 1 hour in refrigerator.
*NOTE: May use blender to make crumbs instead of rolling pin, if desired.
LEMON ICEBOX PIE FILLING: In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Pour into prepared (chilled) pie crust. Place in refrigerator while preparing topping.
MARSHMALLOW TOPPING: Mix together 2 cups of marshmallows and 2 tablespoons milk in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and continue microwaving an additional 30 seconds or until marshmallows are completely melted. Mix well. Refrigerate until cool (about 15 minutes.)
Fold in 1/2 tub of whipped topping and blend well. Spread on top of pie.
Press whole wafers into the top sides around the pie. Place pie in refrigerator to chill until set about 3 hours. Enjoy!
