Lemon Icebox Pie

Renée G. Recipe

By Renée G. ReneeCooks

Prep Time:
No-Cook or Other

I got this recipe from the side of a Borden’s sweetened condensed milk can in 1960 (you do the math), and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s ingredients you can keep on hand to stir up at a moment’s notice. As the family grew, and my time to spend making dessert, grew more and more limited…I just doubled and tripled the recipe. Sometimes I didn’t even bother with the pie shell…just serve up the filling in pretty dessert dishes with graham crackers crumbled on top and call it a party.


graham cracker pie crust
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c
lemon juice
container cool whip

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice; thoroughly blend in about 2/3 of the Cool Whip.
Pour into the pie shell and top with remaining Cool Whip.
Chill for 2 hours before serving.

Maria I used just about half of a 16oz. tub of Cool Whip. Saved the other half to dollop on top of individual servings. The weight...no clue. I just went to check my freezer to see if I had one I could read; I'm out it seems.

I gathered my ingredients to make this easy dessert but got stuck on the cool whip:) No cool whip sold here so I'll make my own but need the weight or size of the container! How much will I need? Thanks:)

2nd time serving this pie and again,everyone enjoyed it,it was perfect for today as it was pretty warm,so it was a refreshing dessert. I like to serve a lemon dessert with seafood,it's a light dessert that just seems to go well with it. Six pies were made and there was not 1 slice left,a couple people had seconds!
