Reviews forLemonade Icebox Pie
"Pretty sad to see every recipe for this kind of pie has been reduced to whipped topping. I’m sharing my grandma’s old fashioned recipe here. First of all - coconut crust, not graham cracker, and you’ll also need Knox gelatin packets. Available at grocery store baking aisle.LEMONADE pieCrust: Melt 4 Tbsp butter in skillet. Add 5-7 oz coconut and stir until med. brown. Press into pie pan and let stand until cool.Filling: Chill 1 qt. bowl and beaters, and chill 1 cup Pet milk in ice tray until frozen around edges, ( 5-10 min.). In a 3 qt. bowl soften 1 envelope Knox gelatin in 1/4 c. cold water. Add 1/2 c. boiling water and stir until dissolved. Add 2/3 c. sugar, 6 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate and 1-2 drops yellow or green coloring. Stir until lemonade is thawed, then chill until thick but not set. Put ice-cold Pet milk into cold 1 qt. bowl. Whip until stiff, then fold into gelatin mix. Pour into crust and chill until firm, (3 hrs.)Garnish with maraschino cherries.Shopping list:7 oz. coconut8 oz.

"Made this according to the recipe for Easter. easy to make, and my family loved it. It is very rich so they suggested serving smaller pieces or reducing the sugar, perhaps using unsweetened whipped cream. Would also be good with some lemon zest added."
"sounded easy so I tried it. Won't do it again. TOO sweet, didn't set well. Only thing I did different used "Light" whip topping. Was the light whip the failure?"
"SOUNDZ SO DELISH!!"
"Five Stars! (I can't see the stars to click on them). Made this recipe for the 1st time, and what a hit! I will add it to my regular rotation of treats to bring to the office. I made a mistake and put in the entire 12 oz. can of lemonade concentrate instead of just 3/4 of a cup. It had a tart flavor but it was delicious; like a yummy treat you'd get at a county fair. I used a large, store-bought graham cracker crust and still had filling left over so put it in the empty whipped topping container, froze it, and ate it for an after-dinner treat. The pie filling needed to be frozen for several hours as it was very soupy but it froze up nicely. All in all, an excellent dessert pie."
"Where did the save the recipe option go? and where are my saved recipes? not happy :("
"I made this twice in the past month......DELICIOUS!!!! It set up immediately, perfectly, I didn't thaw the lemonade. I plan on trying limeade soon too. Thank you Cheryl, for this refreshing, Lemon, Summer treat. I tried to put 5 stars but this new format won't do it. Go back to the old one PLEASE!!"
"I made this pie last weekend. Overly sweet for me. My guests loved it the way the recipe calls for but I would make the following changes just to cut down on the sweetness. I will use unsweetened whipped cream, and a regular pie crust without the sugar, and top it with the extra unsweetened whipped cream and add some lemon zest for extra lemon flavor. I will be making this again!"
"Having trouble saving this into my recipe box. Guess I have to print it out and save the hard copy."
