Hubby likes to ask "Is there dessert?" then loudly exclaim "I like PIE!" after every meal. It's gotten so that the boys try to beat him to it by shouting out the second part before he does. I'm surrounded by crazy people...
But last week I indulged the pie lover in all of us and made a very simple Lemon Icebox Pie with...are you ready for this?...three ingredients. Three. Sweetened condensed milk, lemons, graham crust.* That's it.
The recipe comes from this cookbook, which was a Christmas present from Hubby back in '06. I can't believe I've never made it.

dessert this week is celebration cake I'm making for Scout's Graduation dinner!
This pie bakes 15 minutes, then sits in the fridge at least two hours. We topped ours with Cool-Whip and berries, but that's really just overkill. The beauty in this pie is the simplicity. Cool, lemony, not too sweet. And pretty much perfect for summer due to it's short cooking time.
It might just become a regular dessert around here.
Lemon Icebox Pie
Mix 2 cans sweetened condensed milk with 3/4 c. FRESH lemon juice and 1 t. grated lemon rind. Pour into graham pie shell and bake 15 minutes at 350. Cool, then chill in the fridge for at least two hours.
