Frozen Lemonade Pie from Vanessa of V & Co…
Because Mr. V&Co. was over seas, I made everything he hated for his birthday last year. We did this so he wouldn’t be sad that he couldn’t be here. But this year with him being with us, we had to opportunity to do the birthday tradition of making the very infamous ice cream birthday cake that all the kids in my husband’s family got to have for their birthday growing up and one that I’ve sort of kept going for him in our family.
3 cups crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup melted margarine
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
12 ounce frozen pink lemonade (can be substituted with a type of berry concentrate)
- Mix together the crust ingredients and set aside 1 cup of the mixture. Press the rest on the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350ºF for 5-10 minutes. Cool.
- Mix the ice cream and lemonade together and pour evenly over the cooled crust.
- Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top and cover.
- Freeze at least overnight. (24 hours reliably.)
