Lemon Icebox Pie from Taste of the South

Cool Relief with Icebox Desserts Perfect for Summer

Phyllis Lifestyle 8 Comments

This time of year I long for icebox desserts. We had one that was a family favorite while growing up, “Lemon Icebox Pie.” When Mom made this delicious dessert, it was a special day. When I was grown and ready to make treats for my own family, I called Mom to ask for the secret family recipe only to find that it was taken from the label on the can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk. The real shock came when I went to the store and found out that they had removed the recipe from the can. Thankfully, Mom remembered every detail. Some of the best recipes we have cooked through the years came from the labels on packaging of products.

Our new Taste of the South magazine special edition, Southern Pies & Icebox Desserts, has some of the best icebox recipes for your summer enjoyment, including their own version of Lemon Icebox Pie that’s delicious and easy to prepare.

Flipping through the issue’s pages, I found a number of recipes I’m excited to make, including a delightful-looking Italian Cream Tart and a Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie. I also appreciate the expert tips they included, such as a guide for making meringue and step-by-step instructions for creating a lattice-topped pie. Those handy how-tos make our special issues perfect gifts for young cooks.

I hope you stay cool and enjoy scrumptious bites of wonderful icebox delights.

What is your favorite summer dessert?

  3. Fresh Strawberry Pie & Fresh Peach Cobbler are my favorite summer dessert. I make these frequently when both fruits are in season!

    1. Oh Pam, I had completely forgotten about fresh strawberry pie for lovely summer evenings. Thanks for the reminder–I’m headed to the market to pick up the ingredients in about two ticks. Will be thinking of you this evening. Happy summer!
