Recipe of the Week: Frozen Citrus Pie

Looking through my virtual "recipe box" I realized I'm a little shy on cake and pie recipes.  And...lemon and lime (and even grapefruit) are among my favorite flavors to meld into sweet treats especially in the summer, so this one is right up my alley.  It's a tangy and cold ending to dinner.  It's equally yummy with lemonade or limemade mix.  Even better, it's incredibly easy to throw together - no one has to know how little time or effort it took.

Frozen Citrus Pie

1 graham cracker crust (make your own or store-bought; deep dish is best)
1 can frozen limemade or lemonade concentrate
1 small tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 quart vanilla ice cream

Mix together the concentrate and ice cream. Fold in the whipped topping and mound in graham cracker crust. Cover and freeze until frozen firm. Before serving, let stand a few minutes to slightly soften (it will make cutting easier.) Makes 8 servings.  Eat slow to avoid brain freeze :-)

Happy eating!
