I once heard Martha Stewart say that she has never ate Cool Whip before. She went on to say that she has never cooked with it and would never use it. We have to give her credit for the empire that she built, but Martha is really missing out!! This pie is truly one of my favorite summer desserts! I got this recipe last summer while I was watching an episode of The Neely's on Food Network. Since last summer I have probably made this dessert at least ten times!
If you buy a premade graham cracker crust then you only need 3 simple ingredients for the filling. The filling consists of 1-14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 12 oz. container of cool whip, and 6 oz. of frozen lemonade concentrate. All three items are chilled and you simply fold them together and freeze the dessert overnight. The texture is amazing!! The pie somehow manages to be light but dense all at once. I would say the filling is a cross between a thick mousse or a light ice cream. The filling is smooth, silky, creamy, dense and just has a great mouthfeel. If you cannot tell by now, I am absolutely crazy about this pie!! If you have not tried this recipe, I sincerly urge you to sometime during the summer. It is simply superb, easy, inexpensive, quick and most everyone loves it!! My husband and I ate the whole pie in 3 days! It is the perfect dessert for summer BBQ's, picnics, etc.
