Lemon Crunch Pie Lemon Crunch Pie is like having a slice of lemon meringue pie, without the meringue. It came about one weekend when my hubby wanted a lemony dessert. The only ingredients I had on hand were pretty much the ones I used to

Frozen Lemonade Icebox Pie

Just the name “Frozen Lemonade Icebox Pie” screams summertime! Cool, light, lemony and refreshing. The perfect pie to enjoy on a hot, humid, summer evening. My hubby loves frozen-style pies and since he eats the majority of pies at our house, I’m happy to oblige. I on the other hand like to cool off with a nice big bowl of ice cream and not the soft-serve kind either. No sirree! Not for me…

Soft Serve or Not?

My hubby makes fun of me, (he likes soft serve and I don’t) because I keep our freezers so cold that it takes an hour to thaw the ice cream enough just to scoop it out. He doesn’t realize that when I’m home alone, I don’t bother with a bowl, why dirty a dish! I just take the gallon of ice cream, grab a spoon and go sit down. It thaws out eventually:) I will admit that I don’t partake in this ritual as much as I would like too it’s extremely hard on the waistline!

Cream Pies

My hubby’s favorite pie was/is Banquet Frozen Cream Pies. Banana, Chocolate and Coconut. You know the kind, the ones with the decorative cream top. I’m not even sure if they still make cream pies but if you grew up in the 1960’s and 70’s, you definitely know what Banquet frozen cream pies are. You’ve probably have eaten a slice or two. They were all the rage back then, along with Banquet pot pies, t.v dinners and fried chicken.

Easy and Affordable

I’m sure Aggie purchased one or two of these pies from time to time but she must not have liked them because I don’t remember eating them very often growing up. I do know that Aggie served us slices of this pie frozen and I didn’t realize until years later that Banquet cream pies are supposed to be served thawed! Banquet cream pies and Banquet products in general, were super affordable. Probably why Aggie purchased them at the Red Owl.
