While Caitlin was here Mom, let us make dessert one night. We made the Neely's (from Food Network) frozen limeade pie. It turned out delicious and beautiful, plus it was really easy to make.
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
7 tablespoons butter, melted
Limeade filling:
1 (12-ounce) container whipped topping, thawed
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, defrosted
1 tablespoon lime zest
Candied lime peels, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press firmly on bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 7 minutes and let cool completely.
In a medium bowl, add whipped topping and gently fold in condensed milk. Add limeade and zest and gently fold to combine. Do not let the mixture become soupy. Pour mixture into the pie crust and freeze overnight. Garnish with candied lime peels when ready to serve.
