Lemon Icebox Pie

I absolutely love lemons. My 2 favorite deserts are my sisters lemon bars and my lemon icebox pie. Technically, it's more of a lemon cheesecake but I like this better than any other lemon pie of any name I've ever tried.

8 oz cream cheese
1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Juice and zest from 3 lemons
Graham cracker pie shell

I get as much juice and zest from 3 lemons as I can get. I don't measure it. It's always enough and more is better. I like a TART pie.

Mix all the ingredients and pour into the shell. Refrigerate to set.

Waiting is the hard part.

I like a little coconut on mine, too.

This sounds great, thanks. I just wish I had a premade graham cracker pie crust. I have what is needed to make one except a working oven. Maybe I will do it in an 8x8 pan and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top. It will be lower in carbs anyway. Yes! I will let you know how it turns out.

I wonder if you could let the filling set, sandwich it between two graham crackers, wrap and freeze for an ice cream sandwich thingy.

Packaged graham crackers are rather firm, to the point they are actually crunchy. The graham cracker layers of an ice cream sandwich are soft. Perhaps a home made crust on the bottom of a cake pan with the filling on top then another later of crust. Freeze and slice.

Could you make your own Graham crackers on a cookie sheet, just like making a pie crust? Freeze to the point they are very firm but not frozen solid. That should make the crust easy to cut and use as the top layer. Is my thinking wrong?

I think that the regular graham crackers would soften in the freezer, similar to the chocolate cookie on an ice cream sandwich.

I like your idea of the loaf pan with two layers of crumbs. Reminds me of a recipe my grandmother used to make.

I'm starting to get hungry!

I think I'm gonna get a tattoo of a lemon shaped like a heart. Would that be going overboard?
