Lemon Icebox Pie
Here’s a classic Eagle Brand recipe from the 1940’s... when they had ice boxes !
Prep Time: 15 minutes plus chilling time
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) vanilla wafer crumbs (approx 40 wafers)
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, melted
1 envelope (9.5 g) unflavoured gelatin
1 3/4 cups (425 mL) water
1 can (300 mL) Regular or Low Fat Eagle Brand® sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg (3 oz) or 6 tbsp (90 mL) pre-sweetened lemonade flavour drink crystals
1. Combine crumbs and butter; press firmly on bottom and up side of 9" pie plate. Chill.
2. In small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over ¼ cup water; let stand for 1 minute. Over low heat, stir until gelatin dissolves; set aside.
3. In medium mixing bowl, combine Eagle Brand, remaining 1½ cups water and lemonade crystals; mix well. Stir in gelatin mixture.
4. Pour into prepared crust. Chill at least 3 hours or until set. Garnish as desired.
