Its hard to believe something so simple to make can taste so scruptious! Thanks for sharing -we absolutely love it and for sure will be making it many more times. :-)
I worked at Cracker Barrel in college as a cook. I was never a prep cook, but I believe they made this pie (One of my favorites) with Minute Maid frozen lemonade. I remember seeing the can and thinking, "Is that really all there is to it?" The condensed lemonade with the sweetened condensed milk really gives it that jaw wanginess (that is not a word, but it is descriptive!). Just a thought. I'm sure it is a matter of personal taste. Bon Appetite!
I too have been looking for the perfect lemon icebox pie like the one I had at The Bakery in Haines, AK. (Sorry that I never had the Cracker Barrel version.) I have tried other recipes and most used lemonade and were too grainy in texture. This one has the smoothness and lightness that I was looking for. Thanks.
I have missed the Pie at Cracker Barrel it was my favorite! This is so easy to make and taste just like it!! A cool refreshing dessert.
My family devours this pie each time I make it. My DH was skeptical because he loves the traditional Southern Lemon Ice Box Pie you bake with meringue. However, he took one bite of this and said it was heavenly. He and the kids fought over the last slice! I have made it 3 times and will make it for a dinner party tonight. It looks (and tastes) great with crushed vanilla wafer crumbs sprinkled on top!
I cant believe I didnt post a review for this. Ive made this lots since finding it. I was SOOOOO upset when Cracker Barrel stopped serving this. Thank you so much for getting me pretty darn close. :)
I've been looking for a no bake one I used to make & this is very close. I love the taste of it frozen. I don't thaw it first, just slice & eat. I'm on my second lemon & have make 1 lime. Thanks so much for posting!!
