Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Lemonade Pie!

Posted by on Sat, August 30th, 2014 at 11:00 am

Lemonade is fabulous. Pie is superb. But…what if there was a way to combine these two amazing items into one super-awesome-amazing dish??  Thanks to JKA12 of Canada, there is!!

Here is a recipe that my family & I enjoy very much. My 2 girls love this so much I had to try to recreate it for them, this is the best “comfort food” ever. I recommend flattening the cream cheese out a little thinner than in the picture and using more of the lemon topping. We played with ours to get it just right!

Lemon Cream Cheese Pie

  • 1 pkg. (.3 oz) lemon gelatin
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, cubed then softened
  • 1 graham cracker crust
  • whipped topping

(if using a 9×13 pan, recommend using double the recipe)

Directions:

  1. Prepare gelatin according to the package instructions.
  2. Chill until almost set up.
  3. With a hand mixer or in a blender, add cream cheese and drink mix to gelatin, blending until smooth.
  4. Pour into the crust.
  5. Chill overnight.
  6. Serve with whipped topping.

Alternately, you can use a pastry dough recipe for the base & sides and whatever you have leftover, crumble over the top of the pie. VERY YUMMY either way!

Tip: If you don’t have a crust on hand or don’t feel like making one, you can easily make this dessert without a crust and save the extra calories.

Yes. We would like to have this, immediately!! Thank you for sharing!
